It's a busy time in the Berkeley County election office as poll workers rolled out equipment needed to make sure each voter gets a ballot.
"There is one poll worker out of each precinct that is a messenger and they come and pick up the supplies for each precinct," says Bonnie Woodfall, the Chief Deputy of Elections Voter Registration.
Election officials are hoping for a good voter turnout despite being an off-year election
"It's kind of unfair to compare those numbers to the '08 primary because that was presidential," says Woodfall. "And unfair to '06 because people were just starting to early vote and learn about early voting, so I thought it was pretty good."
The races drawing the most attention: the Democratic state Senate seat, Pat Murphy will try to oust incumbent Senator John Unger who has been serving for the past 12 years.
The school board is another race attracting voters as four members will need to be elected instead of two.
"Two had resigned to seek other political appointments or elections," says John Small, County Clerk of Berkeley County. "We had to replace those two for a two-year term then the other two terms are up anyway
Sure to get voter attention this time, 12 candidates are vying for three seats on the new five member Berkeley County Council.
"Every election is important and it is a right so we need to get out there and exercise those rights," says Woodfall.
With all the equipment in place, polls will open early; ready for voters to cast their ballot.
Polls open at 6:30 a.m. on Tuesday, May 10th.
