Secretary of State offers Mobile Voter ID to Tornado Affected Areas
JACKSON, Miss. (Press Release) — With so many Mississippians displaced from the storms, the Secretary of State’s office will now travel to any eligible voter who needs a Mississippi Voter ID card.
“Many Mississippians are struggling to put their lives together after the deadly tornadoes,” says Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann. “Having an acceptable photo ID to present on Election Day should not be one of their worries. We want to provide a convenience to anyone who lost their identification during the storms and may not have a photo ID to present on Election Day.”
Currently, our Office provides free transportation to and from the Circuit Clerk’s office to any eligible Mississippi voter who needs a Mississippi Voter ID card. Circuit Clerk’s Offices will continue to issue Mississippi Voter ID cards, even when a citizen is not a resident of that county. Now, the Secretary of State’s Office will travel to a voter who lacks acceptable photo ID and needs a Mississippi Voter ID card.
Only Mississippians who lack one of the acceptable forms of photo ID are eligible for a Mississippi Voter ID card. Mississippi Voters ID cards are for voting purposes only and are not meant to replace any other form of identification.
If you or someone you know needs a Mississippi Voter ID card, please contact our office at 1-844-MSVoter.
