Mississippi Mail-in and NVRA Agency Voter Registration Application

Here's How:

• To register to vote in Hinds County, you can pick up a voter-registration application at the Circuit Clerk’s office downstairs at 407 E. Pascagoula St. You can also download the application directly from the Circuit Clerk’s website or the Secretary of State’s website.

• Remember that you must register to vote at least 30 days before the next election in which you plan on voting. So, in order to be eligible to vote in our upcoming presidential and congressional election on Nov. 6, you need to register by Oct. 5.

• The application asks for your driver’s license number or the last four digits of your Social Security number. If you do not have either one, you can present another form of valid photo ID, a copy of a utility bill, a pay stub, a bank statement or a government document (for example, a government check) that shows your current name and address. If you have any questions about what documents will or won’t meet the requirement, call the Circuit Clerk’s office at 601-968-6628.

• Shortly after you’ve submitted your application, you’ll be mailed a Voter Card that will tell you where to vote.

Verbatim: With national attention focused on the Presidential Debate tonight in Denver, the Margaret Walker Center wants to remind all Mississippians that the deadline to register to vote in the upcoming election is this week. Anyone can register at the Margaret Walker Center in Ayer Hall before the end of the day on Friday, October 5.

And, in that context, please make yourselves available for the 29th Annual Fannie Lou Hamer Memorial Symposium sponsored by our partners at the Fannie Lou Hamer National Institute on Citizenship and Democracy at Jackson State. The Hamer Symposium begins tonight, Wednesday, October 3, with a keynote address by Dr. Mary Coleman at 6:30 p.m. in the Dollye M.E.
