VOTER ID > Exemptions
ARE THERE EXEMPTIONS TO THE MS VOTER ID REQUIREMENTS?

              Yes there are three exemptions.

  • Any Mississippi registered voter who states he/she does not have an acceptable photo identification because of a religious objection to being photographed shall be entitled to vote by affidavit ballot without being required to show a photo ID. The ballot will not be rejected for this reason if the voter signs a separate affidavit before the Circuit Clerk within five days of the election.
  • Eligible Mississippi voters will not need a photo ID if voting by absentee ballot by mail instead of voting in person at the polls or at a Circuit Clerk's office. This exemption also applies to eligible voters who are Uniformed Military and Overseas Voters (UOCAVA) who cast an absentee ballot by FAX or email.
  • Any registered voter who resides at a state-licensed care facility and who votes in person at a a polling place located in that state-licensed care facility.
