Early voting is over in Camden County. What is the latest early voting count heading into Tuesday’s election?

According to the latest early voting count from Camden County Registrar’s Office, voter turn is low.

In Camden County, there are over 25,000 eligible voters. Since the closing of early voting on Friday, a total of 1,558 people have voted – roughly a 6 percent voter turnout.

In-person ballot counts of 1,295 have been cast since early voting started on April 30th. For absentee ballots, 263 absentee ballots have been returned out of 491 absentee ballots that were mailed out from the Registrar’s office.

Election polls open up on Tuesday morning at 7 AM and close at 7 PM.

Voters can go to the MyVoterPage and type in their information and the site will direct voters to the correct voting location and a sample ballot.

If voters want to vote for a particular political party, they will need to request that party’s ballot and sign a disclaimer that verifies the correct party ballot. Once the voter enters the voting booth, it is important to check to make sure that the ballot reflects the party ballot.

Both Democratic and Republican ballots have challenged primary races for Georgia’s governor. Nonpartisan ballots will not have candidates for Georgia’s governor. The race for Georgia’s governor will be the first race voters will get to choose from on the ballot. In other words, if there is not a governor’s race on the ballot, chances are, that is a non-partisan ballot and one should check with the local poll worker to get the correct ballot before casting the vote.

If one wants to vote for Georgia governor, or any other contested party race, voters must select a party ballot, not a non-partisan ballot. Non-partisan races will appear on both party ballots.
