Union County Clerk Extends Office Hours, May 31, for Last-Minute Mail-In Primary Election Voters

May 20, 2014 at 12:46 PM

Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi will open her offices in Elizabeth and Westfield on Saturday, May 31, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for voters seeking last-minute mail-in ballots. The office in Elizabeth at the Union County Courthouse, 2 Broad Street, and the office in Westfield at the Colleen Fraser Building, 300 North Avenue East, will be open as a public service for voters who choose the Vote-By-Mail option for the Primary Election to be held on Tuesday, June 3.

“Every voter should have the opportunity to cast his or her ballot in the primary election for federal, county and municipal offices,” Ms. Rajoppi said. “We want to ensure that even those who have a last-minute change of plans can have a chance to vote.”

“By opening the Elizabeth office on the Saturday before the primary election, as we have done for the past 18 years, along with the Westfield office, which has regular Saturday hours throughout the year, we hope to assist those citizens whose work schedules or other commitments keep them from applying to Vote-By-Mail during the work week,” Rajoppi said.

“This option makes voting more accessible, particularly for senior citizens.”

Completed ballots will be kept in a secure lockbox under the control of the Union County Board of Elections, who will collect them for counting. The Clerk’s office has processed more than 1,100 mail-in ballots to date for the Primary Election.

To obtain a Vote-By-Mail application, voters may download the form at the County Clerk’s website: http://ucnj.org/vote-by-mail, but they must bring the completed application to either of the County Clerk’s offices on Saturday, May 31, between 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m., or on Monday, June 2, before 3:00 p.m. For more information, please contact the County Clerk’s office at 908-527-4996.

December 7, 2016

Dear Editor:
