On Tuesday, November 4, registered voters around the country went to the polls to vote in their local, state, and federal elections.  Here in Mississippi, voters had the unique opportunity to vote for two United States Senators in the same year.  More importantly, voters all over the country had the opportunity to choose who would be the next President of the United States.  Of course, this was only possible if you had first registered to vote.

The Government Documents, Microforms, and Current Journals Department created a display where patrons could find answers to the following questions:

  • How can I register to vote?
  • Can I register here in Mississippi?
  • How can I submit an absentee ballot if I am registered somewhere else?
  • What form of ID do I need to bring with me to vote in November?

Voters found the answers to these questions, and much more, by checking out the display in the Government Documents, Microforms, and Current Journals Department.  Also available were voter registration forms for the State of Mississippi.
