No Voter ID Needed for Nov. 6 General Election

JACKSON, MS – Mississippi voters will not need to present a Voter ID or other approved photo identification to cast a ballot in the November 6 General Election.

Although more than 62 percent of Mississippi voters in November 2011 approved an amendment to the state Constitution requiring voters to present photo identification before casting a ballot, the election law has not yet received approval from the U.S. Department of Justice. Therefore, a Voter ID will not be required to vote on November 6, 2012.
