On Election Day, our reporters will be on the ground across Mississippi acting on tips from voters and reporting on any problems at the polls, be it long lines, public health concerns, voter suppression or intimidation and more. Your questions and tips are crucial to helping our team monitor the election process and inform our coverage of this election.

Mississippi Today will field a team of veteran journalists across the state, watching progress at the polls, listening to voters’ concerns and responding rapidly to any developments with long lines, public health, voter suppression or intimidation and more. This is statewide coverage by Mississippi’s nonprofit, nonpartisan news team, committed to documenting a fair and free election.
