Miss. absentee voter mailing issue fixed

(WMC-TV) - We have an update on a situation involving absentee ballots for military and overseas voters from Mississippi.

They were concerned about getting their ballots in time for the November 6 election because the Hinds County Election Commissioners failed to meet the state-imposed September 22 mailing deadline.

Election officials say the problem is fixed, and the absentee ballots are on their way to nearly 100 service members stationed around the country and the globe.

Thankfully, they should receive them in time for the election.
