There were elections for seats on the municipal governing body for Bordentown Township Committee and Bordentown Regional Board of Education (BOE) during the general election on Nov. 8.

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.
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.
