The Elections division has many roles in assuring that Mississippians’ voices are heard clearly through the election process. These roles include training elections officials, collecting campaign finance and lobbying reports, managing the statewide voter registry, collecting election returns, and assisting local election officials in carrying out their election related responsibilities.
The Agency has consistently advocated for transparency and disclosure of public information filed with the Elections Division related to officials, candidates, and lobbyists. Voters’ social security numbers, birthdates, and other private information, however, is not available to the public under Mississippi law. Please be on notice the Agency will not release this information in response to a public records request from any entity or individual.
