April 22 - ALEXANDRIA, Va. - The State of Mississippi will hold its primary election on June 3. If you are a Mississippi resident and want to vote in the primary, you must be registered by May 24. If you live outside your election jurisdiction and need to register to vote absentee, you can do so using the Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) available at FVAP.gov. If you complete and return this form, Mississippi will register you as an absentee voter and send you your ballot for all elections this year.

If you are already registered in Mississippi, there is no deadline to request your ballot if you want to vote in the primary.

Detailed information is available at fvap.gov/mississippi, along with the FPCA. If you are registered and have not received your absentee ballot by May 4, use the Federal Write-In Ballot to vote. The form is also available at: fvap.gov/mississippi.

A PDF fillable document will be provided as a ranked choice runoff absentee ballot simultaneously with the primary ballot. Complete the special runoff ballot at the same time as voting your election ballot and it will be tabulated in the event that there is a runoff election. The runoff election is scheduled for Tuesday, June 24 and will be held if no candidate receives the majority of the votes cast for an office in the regular primary election.
