Mississippi Personhood Vote And Governor Election

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/11/08

Today, Mississippians vote on who will replace term-limited Republican Governor Haley Barbour, and Republican Lieutenant Governor Phil Bryant is the clear favorite to win. Also on the ballot is a measure declaring the unborn to be legal persons declaring that life begins at conception, clearing the way to granting them the rights persons have.

Also on the ballot is an initiative to prevent eminent domain taking of land from one person and giving it to another, and a Voter ID initiative.

As of 8:27pm local time, according to AP, the Person at Fertilization ballot issue (Initiative 26) stands at 39 percent yes to 61 percent no, with 184 of 1876 precincts reporting. The Voter ID ballot issue (Initiative 27) stands at 63 percent yes to 37 percent no, with 134 precincts reporting.
