UNION COUNTY, NJ - Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi announced that her Main Office in Elizabeth will be open for special hours on Saturday, June 1 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for voters seeking last-minute mail-in ballots for the Primary Election on Tuesday, June 4. The County Clerk’s Annex Office in Westfield will also be open on June 1 for its regular Saturday hours from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
“Any registered voter can use a Vote-by-Mail ballot for any reason,” said Ms. Rajoppi. “This special Saturday opening in Elizabeth helps ensure that voters can cast their Vote-by-Mail ballot in time to participate in the Primary Election. Voters can also use our Westfield office during regular Saturday hours to cast their mail-in ballot.”
The County Clerk’s office is located at the Union County Courthouse, 2 Broad Street, room 113 in Elizabeth. The Colleen Fraser Building is located at 300 North Avenue East in Westfield. Both offices will be open on June 1 for voters who choose the Vote-By-Mail option for the Primary Election.
Vote-by-Mail is New Jersey’s form of early voting. Under a 2005 state law, any eligible voter may vote early by using a Vote-by-Mail ballot.
Voters can obtain their Vote-by-Mail Application, receive their ballot, fill it out, and cast it in a secure lock box at the Elizabeth or Westfield offices, all in one convenient “One-Stop” visit.
Voters using the One-Stop service have until Monday, June 3 at 3 p.m. to obtain their ballot.
Under a 2017 state law, voters must show a valid New Jersey driver’s license or non-driver’s license in order to leave the ballot in a secured lock box.
To visit the Elections Office in Elizabeth during the special June 1 hours, use the rear entrance of the Courthouse Complex and proceed to Room 113.
