BRIAN PERRY/Options for President

Three of the candidates for President or Vice President of the United States who qualified to be on the ballot in Mississippi are from Mississippi.

All told, eight parties qualified: Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine for Democrats; Donald Trump and Mike Pence for Republicans; Gary Johnson and Bill Weld for Libertarians; Jill Stein and Ajamu Baraka for the Greens; Jim Hedges and Bill Bayes for the Prohibition Party; Darrell Castle and Scott Bradley for the Constitution Party; Rocky De La Fuente and Michael Steinberg for the American Delta Party; and Barbara Dale Washer and Cathy Toole for the Reform Party of Mississippi. The State Board of Election Commissioners was scheduled to certify candidates for the ballot on September 14.

Little can dissuade resolute Republicans from dumping Trump; nor can passionate Democrats be persuaded to abandon Clinton. But some voters fall into a Vign diagram of both #NeverTrump and #NeverHillary, to use the parlance of our times.
