UNION COUNTY, NJ - The drawing for ballot positions for the June 6, 2017, Primary Election will be held on Monday, April 17, at the County Courthouse, 2 Broad Street in Elizabeth beginning at 3 p.m., Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi announced.

“Anyone interested in the primary election process is encouraged to attend,” said Rajoppi.  “This year voters will decide on a gubernatorial candidate for the Democratic and Republican parties. In addition all legislative Senate and Assembly seats will be on the ballot along with county candidates for sheriff and freeholder.”

The date for the ballot drawing is set by state law. Because that date falls on Good Friday, a state holiday, the law mandates the drawing be moved to Monday, April 17.
