A busy morning in Camp Hill
There was a steady stream of voters early on Tuesday morning outside two bookended polling places in Camp Hill borough in Cumberland County, just across the Susquehanna River from Harrisburg.
Bill Fulton, a criminal defense attorney who cast his first ballot for Democratic presidential candidate George McGovern, said he’s never missed an election.
“I think it’s an important election for both the state and the country,” Fulton, a registered Democrat, said. “I just want to reverse the tide of authoritarianism.”
A Democratic Party volunteer outside Camp Hill Borough Hall said the early hours of Election Day morning had been busy, but voters did not have to line up to cast their ballots. The borough hall hosted polling stations for two precincts.
A poll worker asked the Capital-Star to leave the polling station when a reporter tried to enter and get information about voter turnout. The worker referred a request for comment to the Cumberland County Board of Election.
Across the street at the polling station at Camp Hill Presbyterian Church, there was a similar tableau, as volunteers from both parties greeted voters and handed out campaign literature.
