Bill of the Week: HB 713

House Bill 713 is one that will make registering to vote online available to first-time voters.

This bill was introduced and authored by House of Representatives member, Zakiya Summers of District 68 on February 10th, 2020.

The main caption for this bill reads, “TO AUTHORIZE ONLINE VOTER REGISTRATION FOR FIRST-TIME VOTERS.”

This would allow people who are eligible to register and have a current Mississippi license or photo ID can register to vote online.

This bill was referred to the House Apportionment and Elections committee where Summers is a member.

If the bill makes it out of the committee, it will go to be voted on the House as the next step.
