Abstract:
On July 1, 2006, Camden County, with a total population under 10,000, became the first unified government in North Carolina having the statutory authority of a county and a municipality. The county has no municipalities within its borders. In 2005, the North Carolina General Assembly authorized that unified governments can form in counties without municipalities, as long as local voters approve in a referendum. Camden County voters approved the change in May 2006.
