ELIZABETH, NJ—Voting and elections information just got a little better and a lot more accessible. Union County now has a fully updated and redesigned version of the Union County Votes app. The free app can be downloaded now for your mobile device.
The Union County Votes app lets you quickly and easily access important information on voting and elections, while on the go.
“Mobile technology has revolutionized the way people obtain election information, so we re-designed Union County Votes to assist people with an inclusive menu, from registering to vote to filing a candidate’s petition and everything in between,” Union County Clerk, Joanne Rajoppi said.
The original Union County Votes app was launched by Rajoppi in 2014 and was the first mobile app of its kind in New Jersey. It has been downloaded by thousands of users since its launch.
“People have become accustomed to getting information and alerts on all sorts of topics when they want it, and where they want it,” Rajoppi said. “Voting is the bedrock of our democracy, so voters should have the same kind of 24/7, on-the-go instant access to election information. With that in mind, we have updated Union County votes to make it even more user-friendly and accessible.”
The Union County Votes app includes multiple functions, including candidate statements polling sites, sample ballots, instructional videos, requests for forms, information for military and overseas voters and more.
“Voters who download Union County Votes have everything relevant to elections at their fingertips, including important dates, campaign finance information, district maps and information for 17-year-olds who will turn 18 by Election Day,” Rajoppi said.
“The website mirrors the content and format of the Union County Votes app, so online users can transfer seamlessly from one to the other,” Rajoppi said. “And of course, my staff is available to provide information by phone or in print to those who request it.”
