JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The Mississippi Secretary of State's office is making sure Mississippi soldiers who are deployed, or deploying, will still have a vote in the upcoming federal elections. 

The Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act provides special absentee voting privileges for active members of the US Armed Forces and National Guard. 

"This process of allowing individuals to participate in the voting booth, its so critical when you think of the fact that the only reason we are able to cast a ballot at all is because of what they are doing in Syria, Turkestan, Turkey and all the other places all over the world," said Mississippi Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann

4,000 wallet sized info cards will be shipped out to Fort Bliss, Texas and other training camps. 

The card provides info about upcoming registration deadlines and election dates. 

It also tells soldiers how to request and return a ballot.
