Thompson has served 13 terms as the Congressman for the state’s second district. The second district was expanded this year by the Mississippi Legislature and now encompasses counties the length of the entire state on its western side from north to south, including Adams County.

Givens’ office will be open on Saturday, May 28, and Saturday, June 4, from 8 a.m. as needed for absentee voting. The absentee voting deadline is June 4 at noon.
