Hosemann says ballots are pushed for for August primary
TUPELO, Miss. (WCBI) – Ballots for the upcoming August primary races have been delivered to circuit clerk’s offices across Mississippi.
The Secretary of State’s office pushed ballots out to all counties to help circuit clerks get prepared for the primaries set for August 6.
Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann said there are a lot of races on the ballots and he also pointed out that people can either vote for only Democrat or Republican candidates in a primary.
“Can only vote in one primary or another. Have to either vote on the Democrat side, or Republican side, and we always get questions, oh, I want to vote for this Democrat and I want to vote for this Republican, well, under Mississippi law, you can’t do that, you got to pick one side or the other,” said Hosemann.
Hosemann pointed out that people have until 30 days before the election to register. His office expects a solid turnout for the August vote.
