The Communications and Publications Division is responsible for responding to press inquiries, distributing press releases, managing the office’s social media accounts, and overseeing the majority of external affairs. Our goal is to ensure accurate information is delivered to the public and press in a timely manner. The division also oversees educational, outreach, and constituent programs, including the “Promote the Vote” education program for Mississippi’s K-Grade 12 students.

The Communications and Publications Division produces and distributes official state publications, such as the Official Statistical Register of the State of Mississippi, more commonly known as the Blue Book. Additional publications include the General Laws, Local & Private Laws, House and Senate Journals, and the Judiciary Directory.
