RALEIGH, MS - The 2020 election cycle is well underway and voters need to make plans to vote safely, and securely. The goal of the Smith County Election Commission and Circuit Clerk Anthony Grayson is to conduct a safe and fair election.
The COVID-19 pandemic prompted several changes to state election laws. Please review the following information to ensure you are well aware of current procedures and guidelines regarding the 2020 General Election.
Absentee ballots are available by request, and should be requested as early as possible to ensure your vote is returned in time for counting. Due to COVID-19, the state expects to see a uptick in mailed ballots, and the Postal Service advises everyone to allow ample time for your ballot to reach the Circuit Clerk's office.
