Voter registration, citizens group won't release petition
Placeholder Image
The Kershaw County Voter Registration Office and a citizens group both denied requests to release copies of signatures on a referendum petition to the Chronicle-Independent. More than two weeks ago, a group of Camden citizens submitted a petition worksheet to Camden City Council demanding the city to place a referendum before voters on whether or not to move forward with the construction of a new sports complex. Based on their interpretation of state law, however, the petitioners did not submit the actual signatures they gathered.
