CLARK, NJ- Clark voters are invited to partake in a hands-on public demonstrations of Union County’s new ExpressVote XL voting machines during Clark's National Night Out on Tuesday, August 6. Union County Elections personnel will be on hand to show attendees how the machine works in preparation for the Election Day in November.
“Union County was among the first three counties in New Jersey to introduce the new voting machines last year, and we are looking forward to having this new technology available in all 21 of our municipalities,” said Freeholder Chair Bette Jane Kowalski. “We encourage all residents to attend one of the upcoming demonstration sessions while enjoying these National Night Out events in their hometowns.”
All demonstrations are open to all Union County residents, voters and non-voters alike. Attendees are advised that photographing and/or video recording of voting machines used by Union County is prohibited.
Voters in Westfield piloted the new machines in the 2018 General Elections. Eight additional municipalities started using the new machines starting with the Primary Election on June 4, and the remaining 12 county municipalities will use them starting with the General Election in November.
For those interested, weekly demonstrations are being held every Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Colleen Fraser Building in the Union County Complex at 300 North Avenue East in Westfield. For additional outreach events, visit the Board of Elections’ website at www.ucnj.org/ucboe.
