Make sure you are registered to vote in this important election year!
Register by noon on Saturday, February 8th to #vote in the MS #DemPrimary on March 10th for president (you also get to vote for @AntoniaforMS and for US Senate)! Our circuit clerk, Jeff Busby’s, office will be open 8 am-12 noon on Saturday, February 8th.
Tuesday, March 10th falls during spring break, so make plans to vote ABSENTEE if you will be out of town, or if you are 65 or older. Even kids who will be 18 on or before November 3rd, 2020 can vote in the March 10th primary, *IF* they register by February 8th.
Coming up, Saturday, February 15th at 10 am —
it’s Precinct Caucus time!
Every four years, the Mississippi Democratic Party meets starting at the precinct level to hear about what issues are most important to Democrats. This is your chance to get involved and have your voice heard. Please participate!
Precinct caucuses will last about two hours, at most. Just show up at your local precinct, where you vote— we are working to have all 18 in Lafayette County open.
If you would like to read more about the process or see the 2020 Delegate Selection Plan, you can find info on both on the Mississippi Democratic Party website, here.
Let us remember the words of President Barack Obama as he closed his speech on Feb. 5, 2008:
“You see, the challenges we face will not be solved with one meeting in one night. It will not be resolved on even a Super-Duper Tuesday. Change will not come if we wait for some other person or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. We are the hope of those … who have so little, who’ve been told that they cannot have what they dream, that they cannot be what they imagine. Yes, they can.”
