SOUTHAVEN, MS -

(WMC-TV) - The way you vote in Mississippi is about to change. The state is now rolling out its new voter I.D. cards.

Mississippi voters will have to start showing a photo identification card at the polls in June.

MS Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann is on a mission, using commercials, word of mouth, and any other way he can to educate the public about the new rule. His goal is to make sure everyone knows who needs to get a free voter I.D. card, what is required, and where they can get one.

"We are targeting that part of our those parties of our communities who do not have an I.D.," said Hosemann.

And state officials say if you already have a photo I.D., such as a drivers license, passport, college I.D. or other acceptable photo identification, you will not need the voter I.D. card.
