About this state
M-I-S-S-I-S-S-I-P-P-I. The only state any American can confidently spell. Also, the birthplace of Elvis, the blues, and root beer. One time in 2015, two candidates running for a State House seat in your state tied with 4,589 votes, so they picked the winner by drawing straws. DRAWING STRAWS. Do you really want that? No you don't. So here's what you need to know about Election Day in the Magnolia State.be a voter
Do I have an election this year?
Yes! This year you have elections for governor, lieutenant governor, state legislature, and more! You not only have primaries coming up in August, both the primary and the general elections have optional runoff dates. What does that mean? You could get the chance to vote up to four times this year! We're really jealous, tbh.
