Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi reminds voters that sample ballots for all 21 municipalities are now available for view and download on the County Clerk’s website, ucnj.org/county-clerk and through the Union County Votes App, a free download for your mobile device.
“Sample ballots are mailed out to every registered voter, as always. The online service offers another convenient way to familiarize yourself with the ballot before Election Day,” said Rajoppi. “Also, the availability of the sample ballot on our Union County Votes App allows voters the opportunity to access the sample ballot from the voting booth if necessary.”
This year the design of the sample ballot has been altered slightly to include a blue heading denoting the School Board section of the ballot. The General Election section is still delineated by a red heading.
“The blue bar is intended to alert voters that the School Board Election is placed below the General Election, so voters don’t miss an important opportunity to make their voice heard throughout the ballot,” said Rajoppi.
Similarly, the blue bar and red bar are used to distinguish the School Board Election and General Election parts of the Official Machine ballot and the new Vote-By-Mail Ballot.
