A map properly showing the dividing lines of the several election districts mentioned and described herein is filed in the office of the Town Clerk of Dover.
The Town of Dover shall be divided into four wards, as heretofore, and the existing lines and boundaries of each ward shall be changed in order to equalize the population of each ward as nearly as practicable.
A Ward Commission authorized by N.J.S.A. 40:44-9 et seq. is hereby created to make such changes of the lines and of the boundaries of the respective wards, which Commission shall be comprised of the members of the County Board of Elections, together with the Town Clerk.

The changes of the lines and boundaries of the four wards as defined and fixed by the report of the Commission shall take effect as provided by law after the Commission shall have filed its report in the office of the Town Clerk of the Town of Dover, and such lines and boundaries so established shall thereupon become the new lines and boundaries of the respective wards identified numerically: 1st Ward, 2nd Ward, 3rd Ward, 4th Ward, Dover, New Jersey.
