(localmemphis.com) – Mississippi voters headed to the polls Tuesday to vote on who will represent them in the state capitol, including statewide seats like Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Attorney General.
Voters also chose candidates for State House and Senate seats, and in a number of counties they’re also choosing their county sheriff.
In Mississippi, candidates must get 50% plus one in order to win the primary. If there is no winner, there will be a runoff election in three weeks between the top two candidates.
Winning candidates will face off in the general election in November.
