GLOUCESTER TOWNSHIP, N.J. — Voting in-person is becoming more convenient in Camden County thanks to the efforts of the Board of Commissioners. The board has added seven in-person early voting locations throughout the county.
State legislation to established in-person early voting in New Jersey was passed earlier this year. This law extends the opportunities for registered residents to vote.
This new option allows registered voters to cast their ballot in person, using a voting machine, during a nine-day period prior to Election Day. New Jersey residents can now choose to vote, in person, when it’s most convenient for their schedule.
“Access to the ballot box is the backbone of our democracy, and we need to do everything we can to ensure our residents’ ability to cast their votes,” Commissioner Director Louis Cappelli, Jr., said. “These seven locations – strategically located throughout the county – give our residents every opportunity to vote with ease this fall without worrying whether they can make it to the polls on Election Day.”
Early voting begins on October 23 and concludes on October 31. The polls will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. from Monday to Saturday and 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday.
During the early voting period, voters can cast their ballots at any one of the following designated early voting sites:
- Rowan University – 129 Broadway, Camden (voter parking in PNC lot behind building)
- Collingswood Senior Center – 30 W. Collings Ave., Collingswood (living room on first floor)
