Indianola Voters Must Register by October 10th

The deadline to register for the November 10th Democratic Primary is Saturday, October 10th. As mandated, voter registration for any election ends 30 days prior to the election. If you are concerned and want your voice to be heard, please do the right thing and get registered.

In order to vote in this municipal election and all other county, state, and national elections, the following qualifications must be met:

  • An inhabitant of Mississippi, except persons judicially declared mentally incompetent; At least 18 years old (or will be by the date of the next general election);
  • A resident of the state, county, and supervisor’s district for 30 days;
  • Has never been convicted of any crime listed in Section 241 of the Mississippi Constitution (murder, rape, bribery, theft, arson, obtaining money or goods under false pretense, perjury, forgery, embezzlement, or bigamy).
  • Once you are registered, you generally remain registered indefinitely, unless you move or no longer meet one of the qualifications to vote.

If you live in Indianola and have any questions regarding this process, please contact the City Clerk, Jane Hetzler, at 662-887-3103.

Additional information can be found online at the Mississippi Secretary of State’s website.
