Legislative District 8

The 8th District encompasses 20 communities in Atlantic, Burlington, and Camden counties: Berlin Borough, Eastampton, Evesham, Hainesport, Hammonton, Lumberton, Mansfield, Medford, Medford Lakes, Mount Holly, Pemberton Borough, Pemberton Township, Pine Hill, Pine Valley, Shamong, Southampton, Springfield, Waterford, Westampton, and Woodland.

A majority of those registered are not affiliated with a party. Those who have chosen a party affiliation skew the district slightly Democratic — 31 percent, versus 27 percent Republican. However, voting patterns are decidedly tilted toward the GOP.

Republican Sen. Dawn Marie Addiego of Marlton and Assembly incumbents Maria Rodriguez-Gregg of Medford and Joe Howarth of Marlton are all seeking re-election.

The Democratic ticket is composed of George B. Youngkins of Medford for Senate and Joanne Schwartz of Southampton and Maryann Merlino of Waterford for Assembly.
