Camco Election Offices Open Through Tuesday
The county decides to keep its election offices open every day through Election Day.
Camden County issued the following press release Friday evening:
The Camden County Clerk’s Office, Board of Elections Office and Superintendent of Elections Office will be open Nov. 3, Nov 4. and Nov. 5 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day.
“Election officials have been working around the clock to ensure that Tuesday’s election runs smoothly in Camden County,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli Jr. “We are in full compliance with guidelines sent down from Trenton and our employees are going above and beyond to ensure maximum participation in the general election.”
In order to give Camden County voters easier access to vote during this atypical election circumstance, the commissioners of the Board of Elections have decided to place a locked ballot box at the county clerk’s office in Camden City.
Voters can apply to vote by mail now through Monday, Nov. 5, at 3 p.m. Normally a voter would have to apply at the county clerk’s office in Camden City and deliver their ballot to the Board of Elections in Blackwood by the close of the polls on Election Day. The Camden County clerk’s office in Camden City is located at 520 Market St.
The ballot box at the county clerk’s office means residents can apply for a vote-by-mail ballot, fill out their ballot and insert it into the ballot box, all at one location. The county clerk will be accepting ballots from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3, Sunday, Nov. 4, and Monday, Nov. 5. On Election Day, the county clerk will be accepting ballots from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The Camden County Superintendent of Elections Office on Westfield Avenue in Pennsauken has had its electricity restored, and all locations identified as polling places for the general election will be utilized as planned.
