JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – Mississippi’s top elections official is starting to run TV ads explaining the state’s voter identification law.

There are two 30-second commercials – one that started airing Monday and another that starts in January.

Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann says Mississippi voters will have to start showing photo ID at the polls in June, and the state will issue a free ID card to any voter who needs one.

In both TV commercials, Hosemann explains that people don’t need to apply for a voter ID card if they already have an acceptable form of photo identification such as a driver’s license, college student ID card, passport or gun permit.

He says a driver’s license that’s expired for up to 10 years can still be used for voting.

    So, let me get this right, the voter ID does not have to be current…..ole LeRaw can be dead for 4 or 5 years and it still works……..you got to be kidding.
