ACROSS MISSISSIPPI — The Secretary of State’s Office reports its outreach initiative offering assistance to individuals with no acceptable forms of photo voter identification has received limited response in its first two weeks.
“We have inundated the state with outreach initiatives requesting these individuals contact our office,” says Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann. “So far, only 75 individuals have contacted our office, and of those 75 only 35 had no form of identification.”
The Secretary of State’s Office reports it sent over 5,000 posters and over 10,000 postcards to locations across the state, asking individuals who may not have an acceptable form of photo voter identification to contact our agency. A toll free hotline and website are available, as well.
“We have sent materials to all 82 counties across the State encouraging people to contact us,” adds Secretary Hosemann. “We are hoping this limited response is due to a limited number of individuals who do not have an acceptable form of voter identification.”
