“The essential business of the 2020 election cycle will continue. My office will make use of the technology at hand to ensure that the mandated steps occur according to schedule while taking every available precaution to protect staff and the public at large,” said Ms. Rajoppi.

Ms. Rajoppi also advised voters to use a Vote-by-Mail ballot to participate in the upcoming Primary Election.

“With the outbreak of COVID-19, there is all the more reason to use a Vote-by-Mail ballot and ensure your voice is heard on Election Day,” she said.

Under New Jersey state law, any eligible voter can use a Vote-by-Mail ballot. There is no requirement to provide a reason. Every Vote-by-Mail ballot is counted in every election.

Voters who have never used a Vote-by-Mail ballot can apply for one now. Applications are available for download from the County Clerk’s elections website at unioncountyvotes.com.

To have an application sent by mail, call the County Clerk’s Elections Division at 908-527-4996.
