Brad Morris says that Congress has dropped the ball when it comes to helping the Middle Class and working families of Mississippi and the nation.

With just a few days left before voter registration deadline, Clay County District 4 Election Commissioner Wendy Fuller says that there should be a good turnout on November 6.
â€śWeâ€™re expecting an 80 percent turnout,â€ť Fuller, who also serves as county chairperson on the election commission. â€śWeâ€™re getting prepared for it every day.â€ť
Fuller says that two weeks ago, the county was as many as 500 registered voters up from the last major election. She says that number fluctuates from year-to-year due to people moving, but she says she expects that number is growing daily.
The first in a string of presidential debates is a good indicator that election day is right around the corner.
That also means that there are only a few more days to register to vote and be eligible for the November 6 election. District 4 Election Commissioner and County Chairman Wendy Fuller is encouraging everyone who has not registered to do so as soon as possible.
â€śThe deadline is Saturday, and the courthouse will be open,â€ť Fuller said on Tuesday morning.
