Civil rights, guarantees of equal social opportunities and equal protection under the law, regardless of race, religion, or other personal characteristics.
Throughout history Americans and Mississippians have fought, sacrificed and died to give their children and their children’s children the right to act and be treated equally. No matter your religion, race, gender or sexual preference; all are mandated by the U.S. Constitution to be treated equal.
This country is divided more now then ever before in its history because of rhetoric out of Washington. We must not let that discourage anyone from exercising their rights. November in Mississippi could finally bring change that would improve our status of being last on every good list and first on every bad list. But, change does not come without participation. Won’t you help?
REGISTER TO VOTE. Monday, October 7 at 5:00 p.m. marks the end of voter registration for the November State/County General Election. Honor those who sacrificed so much so you could vote. Register!
If your are already registered, make sure you are still listed as an active voter by calling your county Circuit Clerk’s office (Pearl River County call 601-403-2328.) Also, make sure you have a valid photo ID. The clerk’s office has a list. Then ask your friends and family if they are registered. Anyone can register a voter. The form is on the Secretary of State’s website at sosms.com. We can email a form to you and you can copy as many as you need.
If you are not registered, your Circuit Clerk’s office (for Pearl River County, both Picayune on Goodyear Blvd. and in Poplarville at the courthouse) will be open until 12:00 p.m. (noon) on Saturday, October 5th for anyone to register. Bring your photo ID with you.
If you have any trouble registering, please contact Agnes Dalton at 601-746-6020 or email the Pearl River Democratic Party at firstname.lastname@example.org.
