Atlantic City, Camden holding mayoral races

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - Atlantic City's mayor says even dead people are doing their civic duty in this year's election.

Republican incumbent Don Guardian alleges a voter fraud operation run on behalf of his Democratic opponent, City Council President Frank Gilliam Jr., is paying people to vote Democratic. Guardian says he believes absentee ballots have been cast on behalf of dead people and former residents.

He's asked prosecutors to investigate, but they haven't taken any public action so far.

More than 2,500 applications for absentee ballots in the Atlantic City race have been made to county election offices.
