Business Solicitation

Several area towns are adopting “No Knock
Ordinances. Voorhees Township adopted such an ordinance in 2016 that allows our residents to control unwanted solicitation. The ordinance allows each resident to make an independent choice as to whether they choose to be canvassed or solicited at their home.

Voorhees Township requires anyone wishing to pedal or solicit door-to-door to first apply for and receive a permit. The Township Clerk will issue the license after the application is reviewed by the Voorhees Township Police Department following a background check of each applicant. If approved, the applicant will be issued a permit which is valid for six months from the date of issue. Door-to-door solicitation is only allowed from 10am to dusk.

Residents who choose not to be solicited can contact the Township Clerk at (856) 429-7757 or at  to request a “No Soliciting” sticker that should be placed in an area that is visible to the public.

A solicitation permit is not required for nonprofit organizations or any person campaigning for an elected public office or public question which will be voted upon in Voorhees in a general, special, primary or school board election. Although a solicitation permit is not required for these individuals, they are required to carry a bona fide means of identification.

If a “No Soliciting” sticker is visible on your property and a solicitor knocks on your door, you may contact the police non-emergency number at (856) 428-5400.  Persons violating this ordinance are subject to a fine of not less than $100.00 or more than $1,250.00.  In addition, violators can be sentenced to jail for not more than 90 days or be assigned community service not to exceed 90 days.
