Marlton residents headed to the polls on Nov. 7

Township’s board of education elects two new members, one incumbent.

Voters in Evesham Township went to the polls on Nov. 7 and unofficially elected members of the board of education.

The Burlington County Clerk’s Office has posted results from the election on its website, all of which are unofficial and will remain so until a vote-counting process that could take more than a week to complete.
