Mississippi Votes pursues an engaged electorate

North Mississippi is ground zero for an organization that aims to increase voter registration, turnout and engagement.

Mississippi Votes, a recently-incorporated nonprofit organization, has in recent weeks coordinated volunteer canvassing efforts in Lafayette and Lee counties.

Under the leadership of Elle Beene, a former Itawamba County resident, these canvassing efforts aim to register new voters and collect survey data about voting behavior.

“There’s a lack of primary research on why Mississippians aren’t voting,” Beene said.
