Warren County has received 639 absentee ballots out of 1,175 requested and 1,093 sent.

The Statewide Election Management System reported Mississippians have requested 66,495 absentee ballots. Of those, 61,367 ballots were sent, and 34,561 absentee ballots have been received for the 2020 General Election.
