The minimum voting age is 18. You must register at least 30 days prior to any election to be entitled to vote in that election. In order to register, visit the Circuit Clerk's office. You are required to know your 911 address and social security number or driver's license number.
Do I need a license or a permit to open a business?
Yes. If the business is located inside the city limits, a license will be issued by the city. If the business is outside of the city limits and inside the county, the county Tax Collector will issue your license.
When I sell my car, do I keep the tag?

Where do I get a car tag / license plate?
Car and truck tags are issued by the Tax Collector. You have 7 working days from the date of purchase to register your vehicle.

New residents from another county in Mississippi can wait until their next renewal to change plates. Tags are usually valid for a period of one year from the date they are issued.
