Ravitz and Nocito win reelection for committee; new faces on BOE

According to unofficial results published by the Camden County Board of Elections, Democratic incumbents Michelle Nocito and Jason Ravitz defeated both Republican challengers

Democrats Jason Ravitz and Michelle Nocito were reelected, according to unofficial results by the Camden County Board of Elections, on Tuesday to the Voorhees Township Committee.

Ravitz and Nocito defeated Republican challengers Carmine Valentino and Ilyse Pinette. As of late Tuesday night with approximately 95 percent of the vote counted, Nocito collected 29.92 percent of the vote while Ravitz earned exactly 27 percent. Meanwhile, their challengers both collected 21 percent of the vote. However, these results are not official and are subject to change.

Meanwhile for the Voorhees Board of Education which had three open seats in this years election, the vote is currently too close to call and will require updates throughout the week.

Although the results are unofficial, with 95 percent of the vote in, Monica Watson was leading candidate with 21.26 percent of the vote. Currently, the next two highest candidates are Barbara Dunleavy at 20.72 percent and Mayur Chheda at 20.68 percent. Chheda trails Dunleavy by just six votes. Although that if these results hold up that all three of these candidates will be on the Voorhees Board of Education, a fourth candidate, Rachel Van Aken, who was running mates with Chheda and Watson, trails Chheda by just six votes as well.

Lastly, in the two available spots for three years on the Eastern Regional Board of Education, unofficial results currently name new candidate Veronica Parker and current BOE member Robert Campbell as the winners. Parker earned 26.84 percent of the vote while Campbell earned 22.66 percent.
