Voting Determination Letters for Mississippi

The Civil Rights Division has prepared this site to make Civil Rights Division documents more available to the public.

To the extent that any documents do not currently comply with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act because of the poor quality of the original documents used to prepare this site, the Division is applying its available resources in an effort to create alternative records that are readable.
