Mississippi to Begin Complying with Voting Law – from 1993

Chicot Memorial

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — Mississippi is updating a voter registration deadline to meet a requirement of a 1993 federal law. The state has required people to be registered at least 30 days before the first round of voting in an election but the Mississippi NAACP, the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law and the Mississippi Center for Justice have said that under the National Voter Registration Act people should be able to vote in runoffs if they’re registered at least 30 days before the runoff, not 30 days before the initial election. The secretary of state’s office has agreed and the change gives people more time to register to vote in runoff elections for federal offices.
