By Press Release

COURT HOUSE – Middle Township Mayor Timothy Donohue announced an agreement with the Cape May County Board of Elections Sept. 1 to add a fourth polling place, in Middle Township, for the Nov. 3 General Election.
According to a release, the county has agreed to activate and staff the Martin Luther King Center, in Whitesboro, along with Town Hall, in Court House, Cape Community Church, on South Route 9, and the Green Creek Fire Company, on Bayshore Road.
“We are pleased to announce that the Board of Elections has agreed to our request to give voters access to the MLK Center for the 2020 General Election,” Donohue stated. “This will be a challenging election process for all involved. We want to ensure that voters in every Middle Township neighborhood have faith in the process and are given every opportunity to cast their vote with confidence. Township Committee felt it was important to have the traditional voting station, in Whitesboro, open and accessible for this important election.”
Gov. Phil Murphy Aug. 15 signed an executive order mandating a nearly all mail-in election for Nov. 3. That means all of the state’s 6.2 million registered voters will be sent ballots to vote by mail in the Nov. 3 elections. There will also be a select number of local polling places across the state for people who choose to vote in person, the sources said.
The hybrid setup will be the same as the state’s July primary elections, which were delayed a month and conducted mostly by mail-in ballots to help protect against COVID-19. Under the governor’s order, the location can be used only for dropping off mail-in ballots, voting provisional ballots, or assisting the physically challenged.
“We want to thank Board of Elections member Stig Blomkvest for taking the lead on this issue and Board of Elections registrars Mike Kennedy and Doug Dunhour for quickly acting on our request for expanded voter access, in Middle Township,” Donohue stated. “We would love to see every polling place open for safe in-person voting, but we are committed to doing our best to ensure a fair, free and transparent electoral process for all in these challenging times.”
