Casting your ballot

When you take part in a bond referendum, your individual vote can have a lot of impact. These local elections can be decided by very close margins. 

Middle Township Public Schools will hold its bond referendum on Tuesday, Sept. 17.  

Registered voters who are residents of Middle Township can cast ballots in person or by mail for this special election. 

Each vote counts, so your participation truly matters!

CASTING YOUR BALLOT IN PERSON

How and where can I vote in person?

Voters can go to the polls from 4 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 17. Information on polling locations will be added to this website when it is available. 

 To vote in person: 

    • Ensure you are registered to vote by Aug. 27. 
    • Visit your assigned polling place during designated times on Sept. 17. 
    • Cast your vote. 

If you arrive at the polls and are told that your ballot was already mailed to you, ask for a provisional ballot. This means your ballot will be counted once all mailed ballots are double-checked and processed.

    How can I mail my ballot? 

    If you previously requested a Vote By Mail ballot for all elections, you should be sent one automatically. Cape May County will send those ballots several weeks in advance of the referendum, so watch your mailbox! 

      • Check your Vote By Mail status by contacting the Office of the Cape May County Clerk at (609) 465-1010 or email [email protected]. 
      • Request a Vote By Mail ballot by submitting a paper application to the County Clerk’s office. To receive a ballot in the mail, your application must arrive at the County Clerk’s office by Tuesday, Sept. 10.
      • Please note voters can also request a Vote By Mail ballot in person at the County Clerk’s Office (7 N. Main St., Cape May Court House) until 3 p.m. on Sept. 6, the day before the referendum.
      • Mail your ballot. It must be postmarked by Tuesday, Sept. 17. Ballots also can be deposited in a drop box at one of these locations:
          • Board of Elections, 10 Mechanic St., Cape May Court House
          • Cape May County Clerk’s Office, 7 N. Main St., Cape May Court House
