Take Action during Cybersecurity Awareness Month

Kitchen Fire Safety Highlighted during Fire Prevention Week
Camden County Fire Rescue (CCFR) is joining the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) in celebrating October 4-10, 2020, as Fire Prevention Week.

Voter Registration Deadline TODAY, October 5, 2020
Reminder: The deadline to register to vote is October 5, 2020, for the November 3rd General Election. Learn more at: https://www.mvp.sos.ga.gov.

The Camden County Board of Elections & Registration (BoER) is pleased to announce a new opportunity for registered voters to request an Absentee Ballot for the November 3rd General Election. Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger opened the Absentee Ballot Request portal in late August. On the new site, https://ballotrequest.sos.ga.gov, Georgia voters with a driver’s license or state ID card are able to request an absentee ballot completely online.
Deadline Extended for 2020 Census
The deadline to complete the 2020 Census has been extended to October 31, 2020.

Each Georgia resident counted brings approximately $2,300 per year back to our community through both direct and indirect funding. Over the course of the next decade, this is over $23,000 per person.

Help Camden County get its share of the $675 billion in federal funding distributed annually based on Census data.

Census Takers began working in Camden County on August 11, 2020, as part of the U.S. Census Bureau’s Nonresponse Followup (NRFU). Camden County residents are strongly encouraged to cooperate with Census Takers and complete the 2020 Census for their household to ensure Camden County is correctly counted at the State and Federal levels.

Everyone in Camden County counts. And everyone living in your household on April 1st needs to get counted as part of the 2020 Census. Talk to your friends and neighbors to ensure that they are counted too!

An accurate count informs how billions of dollars in federal funding gets distributed annually for:
  • after school activities,
  • emergency management,
  • health clinics,
  • road repairs,
  • senior services,
  • veterans programs, and
  • hundreds of other programs.
