Why should I vote?

Voting is the cornerstone of democracy. It is the fundamental right upon which all of our civil liberties rest. A strong and healthy democracy must include the voices of all citizens.

Mississippians deserve leaders who are dedicated to making our state a better place for all—your vote makes a difference.
