Tuesday,  April 6, marks the Municipal Primary Election date.

The Polls open at 7 a.m. and will close at 7 p.m. Any voter that is in line at 7 p.m. will be able to cast their ballot.

Only those who live within the Vicksburg city limits are eligible to vote in the elections.

Secretary of State Michael Watson stated in a press release that their office will have observers in precincts statewide. Any issues at the polls will be reported to the proper authorities.

Election day reminders released by Watson’s office include:

  • Mail-In Absentee Voting Deadline: All mail-in absentee ballots must be postmarked by Primary Election Day (April 6th) and received by Municipal Clerk Offices within five business days of Primary Election Day in order to count.
  • Polling Place Location: Please contact your Municipal Clerk’s Office for directions to your polling place.
  • Voter Photo ID: Voters are required to show photo identification at the polls.  A voter without an acceptable form of photo identification is entitled to cast an affidavit ballot. An affidavit ballot may be counted if the voter provides an acceptable form of photo identification to the Municipal Clerk’s Office within five business days after the election.
  • Campaigning: It is unlawful to campaign for any candidate within 150 feet of any entrance to a polling place, unless on private property.
  • Loitering: The polling places should be clear for 30 feet from every entrance of all people except elections officials, voters waiting to vote, or authorized poll watchers.
  • Camera Phones: Voters are prohibited from taking pictures of their marked ballot.
  • COVID-19: Voters are encouraged to practice good hygiene and follow CDC guidelines at the polls.
