Mississippi clarifies filing deadline

It seems that laws often come into being in response to glitches or oversights in existing laws, rather than through some proactive impulse.

Back in 2008, the Socialist Party’s presidential elector papers were submitted on the filing deadline—but after business hours—and rejected by Mississippi’s secretary of state.
