(Cherry Hill, N.J.) – Mayor Chuck Cahn reminds residents to double-check their polling locations before heading out to vote this Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 4 – the first General Election since the Township announced that it would be moving voting locations out of public schools.

The change, which came in anticipation of new regulations from the State of New Jersey, took effect this spring, prior to the June 3 primary. It has eased Election Day logistics for both the Township and the Cherry Hill School District, by removing polling locations from 18 of Cherry Hill’s Public Schools. Voting will continue to take place at the Malberg Administration Building.
“Cherry Hill is proud to lead by example and set the standard for other towns in New Jersey. We expect that this policy will eventually become a requirement in New Jersey, and viewed this as an opportunity to be proactive, rather than reactive,” Mayor Chuck Cahn said. “This change eases Election Day logistics for both the Township and the schools, promotes public safety, and streamlines the Township’s efforts by consolidating the number of locations to be monitored on Election Day.”
Mayor Cahn reminds residents that the easiest way to ensure your vote is cast is to Vote by Mail. Anyone can vote by mail, regardless of their reason.

“The Township will make every effort to ensure every voter knows where he or she should cast their ballot come Election Day. However, the easiest and most convenient way to ensure your vote is counted is to vote by mail,” Mayor Cahn said. “Vote-by-mail applications and full instructions are available in the Municipal Clerk’s Office in Town Hall and on the Township website.”
“The Cherry Hill School Public Schools appreciate this change,” Cherry Hill Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Maureen Reusche said. “It now gives us the flexibility to schedule an in-service day at a time when it is most beneficial to those who participate, rather than always having it on Election Day in November.”
Affected residents were notified earlier this year in mailings from both Cherry Hill Township and the Camden County Board of Elections.
Anyone with questions or concerns about their polling location should call the Municipal Clerk’s Office at (856) 488-7892, or e-mail Township Clerk Nancy Saffos at email@example.com. The Clerk’s Office is located in Room 107 of the Cherry Hill Township Municipal Building, 820 Mercer St.
