Time running short to vote absentee for primary election

With the primary election date set for March 10, Republican and Democratic primaries in Mississippi are less than two weeks away. Absentee ballots are currently being accepted, with a deadline of March 7.

Lincoln County Circuit Clerk Dustin Bairfield will keep his doors at the Brookhaven-Lincoln County Government Complex open Saturday and March 7 from 8 a.m. until noon to give residents a last-minute chance to vote absentee. Saturday is also a poll worker training day, which is open to the public, as well.

Young voters age 17 also have the opportunity to vote in the primaries as long as they will be 18 during the general election. This year, voters born on or before Nov. 3, 2002, are eligible to vote. Residents should bring a photo ID with them when they go to the polls.
