The three open seats on the BOE are part of the Bordentown Township section of the board. No Bordentown City or Fieldsboro seats were up for election this year.

Non-Binding referendum

A non-binding referendum question received 2,183 “yes” votes and 1,508 “no” votes.

The question asked Bordentown Township residents whether or not they were in favor of a 2-cent tax (per $100 of assessed value) dedicated to the preservation and maintenance of open space and recreation land. If assessed, the average homeowner would pay approximately $50 per year ($4 per month) toward the earmarked funds.
