About Delbert

A Man You Can Trust

Elected in November 2007, the Honorable Delbert Hosemann serves as Mississippi’s eighth Secretary of State since 1900. He was re-elected to his third term in Office in 2015.

Secretary Hosemann is committed to serving the public with open and fair government.  In the short time since he was elected, he has worked tirelessly to ensure the integrity of Mississippi’s vote, ethically manage state lands to guarantee the future for our children, and make our State more business-friendly and attractive for economic development.

Secretary Hosemann, along with his wife Lynn, is an advocate for and was instrumental in the successful effort to reform insurance laws in Mississippi to include coverage of treatment for autism. As a result, in 2015, H.B. 885 passed the Mississippi legislature, mandating health insurance policies to provide coverage for screening, diagnosis and treatment of autism spectrum disorder for children age two to eight. The law also created the Mississippi Autism Board, which is tasked with licensing behavior analysts and assistant behavior analysts in the State.
