Democrats return to select party nominees on Aug. 29

The circuit clerk’s office was open until noon last Saturday, the first day of In-person absentee voting for the Democratic primary runoffs. Absentee voting continues this week from 8-5 through Friday and from 8-noon this Saturday, Aug. 26, the final day for in-office absentee voting.
Walthall is one of 66 counties with a runoff in the Democratic primary. Republican nominees were selected Aug. 8, and there is no Republican primary runoff.
Mail-in absentee ballots must be postmarked by Aug. 29 and received by the Walthall circuit clerk’s office within five business days of Aug. 29 in order to count.
Only those who voted in the Aug. 8 Democratic primary in the fifth district supervisor’s race and/or the first district coroner’s race are allowed to vote in the second primary.
If you voted Republican in the first primary, you are not eligible to vote in the Democratic runoff.
Winners of the two Democratic runoffs on Aug. 29 will be placed on the general election ballot where they will face Republican, third party or independent opposition, if any, on Nov. 7. Winners of the Nov. 7 general election will assume office Tuesday, Jan. 2, 2024, following the New Year’s holiday.
Persons who did not vote in the Aug. 8 first primary may vote in the second Democratic primary.
If you vote absentee and wish to track your ballot, visit the Secretary of State’s My Election Day online portal.
