Voter ID: Time running out

Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann called Wednesday “a good day for voter ID,” after a Pennsylvania judge approved the state’s new voter ID law that could be implemented by November.

But, in terms of seeing Mississippi’s ID law in effect this election day, don’t count on it.

“I’ve said our prospects are dim, and they’re going to be extinguished here shortly when we get past Sept. 1 because the ballots start,” Hosemann said, referring to military ballots that can be sent out no later than 45 days before the election.
