Welcome to the City of Biloxi’s online voter information section. One of the most important responsibilities of a citizen is to exercise their right to vote. You’ll find links to helpful information here.
Like many other municipalities in Mississippi, Biloxi has re-drawn its ward lines to reflect population shifts shown in Census 2010. Those new ward lines, which were approved by the Department of Justice in March 2013, will be used for the 2013 elections.
Now that the ward lines have been approved, the city will launch a broad outreach effort to educate residents about the new ward lines and polling places. To see if you are impacted, click on the link the ward map below. Maps showing the ward lines and polling places also will be mailed to all residents of Biloxi.
