UNION COUNTY, NJ – Election results is becoming easier to get with the launch of UnionCountyVotes.com, a new website that provides voters and election followers with complete information on the November 8 General Election.

“UnionCountyVotes.com is designed to provide the public with information in a simple, easy-to-follow format that resembles our free Union County Votes mobile app,” said Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi. “It is especially convenient for people who need to view websites in large type.”

Rajoppi noted that members of the public can still access the same information on the Union County website by visiting ucnj.org/county-clerk and following the links on the left column of the page. The links will automatically direct users to the new website.
