Voters Turnout For Mississippi Primary

March 11, 2008

Early indications in Mississippi are that voting trends seem to be the
heaviest where voters are choosing candidates in both presidential and
congressional races.

Overall, the state is calling for a light to moderate turnout. The polls are open from 7AM to 7PM. A rainy start to the day may have dampened some of the morning voting. With tight Democratic presidential race.

The Mississippi primary has garnered more attention than normal. In
the past few days, Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, former President Bill Clinton and their daughter, Chelsea, have been campaigning across Mississippi. Obama began campaigning in the state on Monday.

Obama is expected to handily win the state and the majority of the party's 33 convention delegates.
