PONTOTOC, Miss. (WTVA) -- In Pontotoc County Monday afternoon a group of election commissioners worked hard to be sure everything was set up and ready for Tuesday's election.
"We have been to all the precincts setting up two to three or four machines to each precinct depending on the number of voters in each," says Election Commissioner Laura Franklin.
Pontotoc's circuit clerk has also been answering phone calls for the past few days answering callers questions about what to bring and where to go.
"They do not have to have an i.d. this time unless it's their first time to vote, and then they will need to bring an id with them," says Pontotoc's Circuit Clerk Melinda Norwicki. "They just need to know which precinct to go to and then we will look their names up in the poll book."
Don't forget there is to be no campaigning within 150 feet of a precinct so that means 150 feet to the door of this precinct there can be no t-shirts, bumper stickers, or campaign stickers.
If it's your first time to vote or if the electronic machines just intimidate you the election commissioners say they will be there to help cast ballots, but for the most part the machines are simple to use, but there are a couple of obvious things to get ready for when it comes time to vote.
"I think the most prepared you can be is to learn who the candidates are for each one of the offices, and know who you'd like to vote for in each office," says Franklin.
Last, but not least.
"Just be patient be prepared to stand in line because everyone has to be looked up in the poll book," says Norwicki.
