Drakeford is officially Camden's Mayor-Elect
Placeholder Image
Tuesday, Nov. 8, Alfred Mae Drakeford was unofficially announced as the new mayor of Camden, but on Friday, Nov. 11 there was a recount of votes for the election -- and then there was a recount of the recount. After every election in Kershaw County, by state law, the county election commission conducts a provisional ballot hearing during which any contested or challenged ballots are examined to see if they can be legitimately counted. However, Friday’s provisional ballot hearing was especially important because a recount was required for the mayoral election for the City of Camden.
