The Delran Municipal Election Referendum was on the November 3, 2009 ballot in Burlington County for City of Delran voters.

The referendum proposed to change their municipal election date from May to November. In addition to changing the date, the move would also make the elections for that town partisan elections. Delran, along with eighty other towns in New Jersey, utilize elections in which local candidates do not identify themselves via party affiliations on the ballot.[1]

Supporters of the referendum state that the move would help the community save money, as towns that hold nonpartisan elections generally pay for all the equipment and expenses themselves.Additionally, supporters claim that the move will solve the problem, to some extent at least, to low voter turnout, although there is still some debate concerning how valid this argument is.[2] 3,110 to 606
