Cape May County Republican Freeholders Gerald M. Thornton and E. Marie Hayes are being challenged by Democrats Joyce P. Gould, a commissioner in Wildwood Crest, and Elizabeth F. Casey, an Ocean City attorney.

In Sea Isle City, residents will also vote on a nonbinding referendum asking them whether they support including an indoor swimming pool for a proposed community recreation center that would be built in place of the former public school at 4501 Park Road.
