Vote Tuesday in Mississippi’s Primary

Tuesday, March 8th is Mississippi’s opportunity to choose who they want representing them in the November General Election. Both Republicans and Democrats hold their primaries on the same day and, since Mississippi is an “open” state, anyone can vote for either party.

While both the Democrat and Republican parties have had many contenders drop from their respective primary races, many will still be listed on the ballots.  For the Democrats, the ballot will have the following:

  • Hillary Clinton*
  • Roque ‘Rocky’ De La Fuente
  • Martin O’Malley
  • Bernie Sanders*
  • Willie Wilson

The Republicans have reduced the number actively campaigning to four but the list of names on the Mississippi ballot also remains lengthy:

  • Jeb Bush
  • Ben Carson
  • Chris Christie
  • Ted Cruz*
  • Carly Fiorina
  • Lindsey Graham
  • Mike Huckabee
  • John R. Kasich*
  • George Pataki
  • Rand Paul
  • Marco Rubio*
  • Rick Santorum
  • Donald J. Trump*

Asterisks indicate those candidates with active campaigns.

In addition to the widely publicized Presidential Primaries, South Mississippi will also be selecting their choice to represent the respective parties for the U.S. House of Representatives 4th Congressional District.  Incumbent Rep.
