Mayor Brennan is proud that Merchantville was chosen as an early voting location in Camden County. Merchantville is one of only seven towns in Camden County chosen to offer Early Voting from Saturday, October 23rd through Sunday, October 31st. During this additional voting period, registered voters may cast their ballots at the Community Center, 212 Somerset Street at voting booths available between 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m.-6 p.m. on Sundays. This new option enables all registered voters to cast their ballot in person, using a voting machine, during a nine-day period prior to Election Day with no appointment necessary. New Jersey residents may now choose to vote, in person, when it’s most convenient for their schedule. Each early voting location in Camden County is open to all registered Camden County voters. Individuals do not need to vote in their registered municipality.
On March 9, 2020 Borough Council passed Resolution R20-44 awarding Joseph A. Cuzzupe the contract to complete various renovations and improvements at the Community Center recreation park. Renovations included the installation of a bocce ball court and basketball court. Residents can look forward to using these beautiful new courts with friends and family as soon as social distancing guidelines are loosened to permit the use of recreational equipment and public sports facilities. For now, we will all have to appreciate a job well done and admire them from afar.

Last evening the Merchantville Community Center was rededicated with a ribbon cutting ceremony. Organizations that use the center regularly, as well as friends of the center, were in attendance as Mayor Brennan gave a special thanks to the Camden County Improvement Authority for their support through funding and management of this project which included major structural repairs to the drainage system, accessible bathroom facilities, basement storage and the addition of an expansive terrace. In January the Borough announced that the Community Center would undergo extensive renovations over the next several months. The project will began around the third week of January and and was completed in the summer. During renovations the back section of the building as well as the playground area will not be accessible during this entire period.
