Voters in 66 counties will go back to the polls on August 29th to cast their ballot in the runoff elections in their respective political party primary.

The Mississippi Secretary of State’s office has announced that in-person absentee voting for the Primary Election Runoffs will begin Saturday, August 19th and run through Saturday, August 26th.

The Primary Election Runoffs will be held on Tuesday, August 29th.

Circuit clerk offices will be open from 8:00 a.m. to noon for in-person absentee voting this Saturday and normal hours during the next week.
