“While concern over the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) causes the cancellation of sporting events, concerts, and other mass gatherings throughout the country, the Office of the Camden County Clerk and the Camden County Board of Elections are working diligently to ensure the safety and security of the primary election on June 2. Our sole focus is protecting the integrity of this process and ensuring that every Camden County resident who is eligible and wants to vote can do so.
Although Camden County has just one presumptive positive case of coronavirus as of March 11, we are taking extremely seriously the possibility that a broader outbreak could occur or be in progress when voters head out to the ballot box. Rest assured, you will always be able to cast a ballot in Camden County and have your voice heard.
For those who are concerned about the health risk posed by coronavirus, which health officials maintain is considered low to our community at this time, I want to remind them that Camden County has an alternative voting process which is just as safe, secure, and confidential: vote by mail. Residents of Camden County can register to vote by mail until 7 days prior to the election, or until 3 p.m. the day before the election if they register in person. Registering now will allow you to safely cast your ballot regardless of the status of coronavirus in our community on June 2.
