What is a primary election?

A primary election is where parties decide who to nominate as their candidate in the general election, which takes place in November.

Mississippi is an “open primary” state. You can choose the party’s ballot you wish to vote for. This decision does not register you with that party and it is a private decision.

In a primary election if a candidate does not win with the majority of the votes (50%+1) there will be a primary runoff election scheduled for a few weeks after the primary election date. The runoff election will have the top two candidates with the most votes to ensure that one of them receives the majority of the voters.

Any U.S. Citizens, at least 18 years old, who are residents of Mississippi are eligible to vote as long as they have not been convicted of a disenfranchising crime and have not been declared incompetent to vote by a court.

Spread the word

Did you know that millions of Americans can’t access the democratic process because of solvable problems in how elections are run? These problems aren’t felt equally across communities – voters of color are 6x more likely than White voters to wait longer than an hour to vote, even in the same town. Spread the word to help defeat barriers to the ballot box.
