Mississippians head to polls to vote on medical marijuana, state flag on Election Day

SOUTHAVEN, Miss. — Voters in Mississippi are heading to the polls today to cast their ballot in the 2020 Presidential Election.

Because the Magnolia State does not have early voting, lines are expected to be long at polling locations.

Polls will open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.

Voters should bring their ID.

Curbside voting is available for those who qualify, although wait times may be longer than normal.

Voters will not just be casting ballots for the Presidential race, but also for the School Board race in District 5, the U.S. House and Senate seat and the U.S. Supreme Court Judge.

Two hot topics on the ballot in Mississippi are medical marijuana and the new state flag.

RELATED: Two initiatives on ballot focus on legalizing medical marijuana in Miss.

If passed, Initiative 65 will allow people with epilepsy, cancer, ALS, and other medical conditions to get medical marijuana I.D. cards.

Doctors could then prescribe 2.5 ounces of marijuana to those patients over a 14 day period.

The new “In God We Trust” flag is already being flown in Oxford over several city buildings.
