Voting absentee? You may need extra postage

The Associated Press reports Mississippians voting by absentee ballot this year should pay attention to their postage.

Circuit clerks say envelopes for the ballots are larger than the standard letter size and will require extra stamps.

In Pearl River County, Vickie P. Hariel says the postage is $1.40.

In Lee County, however, Joyce Loftin says postage is 83 cents.

The election is Nov. 4. Absentee ballots that are mailed must be received by county election officials by Nov. 3.
