JACKSON — The Secretary of State’s Office is making it easier for Mississippi voters to “Be Informed, Get Connected” leading up to the Nov. 4 general election.
Mississippians can now text “MSVoter” to 95577 to receive text message updates and reminders from the agency regarding the election process.
“We want our citizens to have access to the most up-to-date information leading up to every election,” says Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann. “A text message is a quick, easy way to help keep everyone informed.”
Here is how the system works:
• Anyone can text “MSVoter” to 95577.
• A standard text message will confirm the addition of their cell phone number to the distribution list. The message will also explain how to opt out if they choose.
• Important election reminders and updates will be sent out periodically by the Secretary of State’s Office. A user may opt out at any time.
“We live in a busy world where it can become easy to unintentionally miss a deadline to cast an absentee ballot or forget what time the polls close,” says Hosemann. “Cell phones are part of most people’s daily lives and can serve as a great reminder tool.”
If applicable, standard text messaging charges will apply.
