Springfield Township is located in the 3rd Congressional District[44] and is part of New Jersey's 8th state legislative district.[8][45][46] Prior to the 2010 Census, Springfield Township had been part of the 4th Congressional District, a change made by the New Jersey Redistricting Commission that took effect in January 2013, based on the results of the November 2012 general elections.[47]

For the 2004-15 Session, the 8th District of the New Jersey Legislature is represented in the State Senate by Dawn Marie Addiego (R, Evesham Township) and in the General Assembly by Christopher J.
