HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

We are getting closer each day to the deadline for unregistered voters to get registered for the August 4 primary election. The official deadline is July 4. This is such an important right, so please do not miss the chance to have your voice heard.

For information on where and when you can register visit the Mississippi Secretary of State's website at sos.ms.gov.

According to Delbert Hosemann's office, they will be closed on Friday, July 3 for the holiday, but open on July 4 from 8 a.m. until noon. Remember this is one of our most valuable rights, so don't forget to get registered and then get out and vote.

This is today's viewpoint.
