By applying for a passport at the County Clerk’s Office Annex in Westfield, at 300 North Avenue East, in Westfield, applicants can have their photo take free of charge. No appointment is necessary.  Applicants must arrive a half hour before closing. Also, the office will remain open for an additional hour from 9 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
