Tomorrow is Election Day and it is your chance to decide the direction of our great country. We are working hard to remind voters how important this election is for our families and our future.
I am voting because our children and grandchildren deserve a nation of tolerance and love, because our men and women in uniform deserve only the best from a grateful nation, and because the safety of our nation and our communities is at stake.
Democracy is not a spectator sport, it is a chance to have your voice heard. So please go and vote tomorrow and bring your friends and family with you.
If you have any questions about your polling location click here for more information. Polls are open from 6am to 8pm.
Thank you for all your support. Now let's go vote.
Congressman Donald Norcross cast his vote in the 2016 election on Friday, making use of Camden County's Early Voting Center ahead of Election Day.
"This is a great service for anyone who wants to vote but may not be able to make it to the polls,” said Congressman Norcross. "I'm proud to cast my vote today and I encourage everyone to either come to the early voting center or go to the polls on Tuesday."
Norcross joined thousands of local residents who have visited the Camden County Elections and Archives Center at 100 University Court in Blackwood, NJ, to vote early this election year.
Congressman Norcross is running for re-election to serve New Jersey's 1st Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives.
“America works best when everyone takes part in our elections,” said Congressman Norcross. “Whether you vote early, vote by mail, or head to the polls on Tuesday, I simply encourage everyone to participate in democracy and vote!”
Camden County's Early Voting Center will welcome voters on Friday from 7am to 7pm, on Saturday from 9am to 3pm, and on Monday from 9am to 4pm.
Gloucester County residents can also vote early at the County Store in the Deptford Mall on Friday from 10am-9pm and Saturday from 10am to 5:30pm, or at the Board of Elections at 550 Grove Road, West Deptford, on Friday from 8:30am to 4:30pm, Sunday from 9am to 2pm, and Monday from 8:30am to 3pm.
A clean sweep! Donald Norcross has been endorsed by the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Courier Post, the South Jersey Times, and just today, the Burlington County Times!
Here’s what the Burlington County Times editorial board had to say in today’s endorsement:
“For his track record and focus on what we believe to be the top priority among county constituents — the economy — we endorse Donald Norcross.”
“His successes include helping to craft the Economic Opportunity Act, which raised tax incentives for businesses expanding or relocating to South Jersey and has brought development to the area. He co-sponsored the state Higher Education Reorganization Act, which brings more of the state’s higher-education funding to the southern end of New Jersey.”
“We believe he is the best choice for effective representation in Washington. The Burlington County Times Editorial Board urges voters in the 1st District to support Donald Norcross.”

Donald Norcross for Congress

I'm proud to announce the Philadelphia Inquirer has endorsed my campaign for reelection, praising my efforts to raise the minimum wage and improve healthcare in our region.
I'm grateful the Philadelphia Inquirer has joined the Courier Post and South Jersey Times in supporting my reelection to Congress. With just 12 days to go until Election Day, I hope you will urge friends and family support my campaign for South Jersey families.

Today I am honored to have received the endorsement of both the Courier-Post and the South Jersey Times!
The Courier headline reads "Norcross deserves another term in Congress" and the SJ Times says "Return Rep. Norcross to 1st Dist. House seat."
Here are a few things they had to say about why our continued fight for South Jersey's families is so important.
"Norcross speaks with the authority of someone who understands the people behind the policies and actively seeks out places where politicians with different regional priorities and clashing ideologies can come together to make a difference in Americans’ lives."
"Norcross is off to a steady start as a practical and pragmatic lawmaker who understands his constituents’ concerns. He gets that making education and jobs accessible to more people will do more to transform society than returning to a more exclusionary model."
"Donald has earned re-election as a thoughtful presence in the House of Representatives."
You can read the full endorsement here, and I hope you will urge friends and family to support me on November 8th.
I recently wrote an op-ed in the Courier Post about the national gun violence epidemic. I hope you will take a moment to read it and join me in calling for common sense gun safety in our communities. Thank you.
Last month I had the opportunity to join Planned Parenthood of Southern New Jersey as they celebrated 80 years of service to our community. For the past 8 decades, Planned Parenthood has devoted itself to providing critical health care programs such as cancer screenings and prenatal care to families throughout the country. Despite the relentless attacks against them by extremists in Washington, the services they provide are truly invaluable.
As many as 22 of our veterans commit suicide every day. This shocking statistic should be a wake up call to us all that more needs to be done for those who bear the so-called invisible wounds of service. This week I had the opportunity to speak with veterans here in South Jersey about this severe problem. Congress must act to help our heroes.
Last week I welcomed Congressman John Lewis and other community leaders to my hometown of Camden for a forum on gun safety. We spoke with those who have had first hand experience with the devastation gun violence causes to families and communities.
