Deadline to register to vote for November election is Monday

NATCHEZ — The Nov. 6 general election is fast-approaching and voters who are not already registered have until 5 p.m. Monday to register in order to be able to vote in the election, Adams County Circuit Clerk Eddie Walker said.

The Circuit Clerk’s office, located in the Adams County Courthouse at 115 S. Wall St., is open Monday through Friday 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. and will be open 8 a.m. until noon Saturday to give voters an extra chance to register before the deadline, Walker said.

“If you are not yet registered, you are welcome to come by then,” Walker said. “The last opportunity is Monday before 5 p.m.”

If you plan to mail in your registration, it must be postmarked by Oct. 9 in order to be accepted, said Eva Givens, chief deputy clerk.

Anyone who is currently 17 years old but who will be 18 on or before Nov. 6, Walker said, should go ahead and register before Monday’s deadline so they will be allowed to vote on Nov. 6.

Walker said absentee balloting also is underway at the circuit clerk’s office and anyone who would like to file an absentee ballot could come by the office.

Reasons for being able to file absentee ballots include, but are not limited to, people over 65 yeas of age; college students who are away at school; and people who are overseas, including military members.

Walker said anyone with questions about absentee ballots could call his office at 601-446-6326.

On the ballots in the Nov. 6 general election will be races for two U.S. Senate seats; a U.S. House of Representative seat; nonpartisan judicial races for Southern District Supreme Court; Court of Appeals Judges; Chancery Court Judges; and County Court Judges.
