In-person and mail-in absentee ballots are available at county circuit clerks’ offices. To verify eligibility for voting absentee, check this secretary of state’s guide or contact your local circuit clerk’s office.

For absentee voting, your county circuit clerk will confirm you are a registered voter in that county by checking the Statewide Elections Management System, confirming your address, and checking your photo ID. For more information on Mississippi’s voter ID requirements, check here. You will also be asked your reason for absentee voting.

For those unable to go to their circuit clerk’s office during weekdays, Saturday in-person absentee voting dates are July 29 and Aug. 5, from 8 a.m. to noon.
