Post-Election Day Update

The Mississippi Secretary of State’s Office received no reports of major issues during primary runoff elections held on Tuesday, April 27. 

Additionally, call volume into the Elections Hotline remained low throughout the day, with most calls relating to polling place locations and voters trying to determine if there were runoff elections in their municipalities.

As a reminder, any voter who cast an affidavit ballot on Primary Runoff Election Day because the voter did not have an acceptable form of photo ID must visit their local Clerk’s Office by Tuesday, May 4 to show an acceptable form of photo identification. 

Municipalities have until May 7 to send certified results from primary runoff elections to our office. As always, certified results will be posted on the Elections Results tab of our website. General Election Day is Tuesday, June 8.
