JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Municipal primary elections are Tuesday, April 6, 2021. Polls will open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.

Any voter in line at 7 p.m. is entitled to cast a ballot.

How do general elections work?

When you go to your polling place on April 6, you will have to vote either as a Democrat or Republican. If no candidate receives more than 50 percent of the vote in a party primary, there will be a runoff election between the top two candidates in that race.

Here are the candidates for the Jackson elections as well as where you can go to cast your ballot.
