Last minute advice from Camden County election officials encourages voters to get to the polls well before closing and have identification ready.
So far, Camden County voters have filed 3,366 absentee ballots. In the 2008 persidential election, Camden County counted 5.070 absentee ballots on election. Although county officials do not expect to exceed 2008's record setting number, there is still time to cast an early ballot. The clerk's office will be open on Friday and Monday during normal business hours and on Saturday for those who can't come during the week.
Clerk's offices will be open for absentee voting on Sat., Nov. 3 from 8 a.m. to noon.
On election day, the advice from Clerk rowland Todd's office is to use their voter registration card or driver's license. The new electronic voter check-in will allow lines to move much quicker, especially if voters have their identification. Their id's can be scanned keeping the lines moving which will allow voters to get in and out without long waits.
On election night, Camden County final returns should be available around 9 p.m.
Absentee ballots are the first counted after polls close. Write-ins are the last after all other ballots have been counted.
