The Camden County Freeholder Board has opened a 61,694 square foot facility on 6.23 acres in Gloucester Township.
The Camden County Elections and Archive Center houses the offices of the Superintendent of Elections, Board of Elections, County Adjuster and some election services of the County Clerk’s Office. It also provides secured storage for county record management, along with space for 800 voting machines.
“This facility epitomizes the Freeholder Board’s continued commitment to finding new ways to increase the efficiency of government while reducing costs,” said Freeholder Jonathan L. Young, Sr., liaison to the Camden County Department of Buildings and Operations. “Not only does it provide space for the approximately 35 employees involved in the election process and storage for voting machines all under one roof, it allowed us to terminate five leases for a saving of $500,000 a year.”
Additional savings will be realized by combining office operations such as copier services, document shredding, records storage, IT and security.
The building provides 12,000 square feet of space for Camden County Records and Archives, 29,000 square feet of storage for election materials and 10,000 square feet of office space for use of the Superintendent of Elections, Board of Elections, County Adjuster and County Clerk. Secured storage space at the facility is also available for law enforcement and public safety.
The Camden County Elections and Archive Center is located at 100 University Court in Blackwood, New Jersey.
