UNION COUNTY, NJ -- Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi reminds residents that the County Clerks’ Elections Office in Elizabeth and Westfield will be open for special hours on Saturday, Nov. 4, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., for anyone wishing to obtain an application for a Vote-By-Mail ballot in person.
“If desired, voters can apply for a Vote-by-Mail ballot, fill out their ballot and cast it in a secure collection box at the Elizabeth or Westfield office, all in one visit,” said Ms. Rajoppi. “I encourage voters to use Vote-by-Mail, and my office provides this ‘One-Stop’ service to help ensure that the process is user-friendly and convenient.”
Voters not using the County Clerk’s One-Stop service must return their Vote-by-Mail ballots to the Union County Board of Elections by mail or in person by Election Day.
To use the One-Stop service at the Elizabeth and Westfield offices, a 2015 state law requires voters to provide a New Jersey driver’s license or New Jersey identification card with their photo, name, address and signature.
Voters may apply for a Vote-by-Mail ballot in person at both locations until Monday, November 6 at 3:00 p.m.
Voters can also download a Vote-by-Mail application via unioncountyvotes.com or by using the Union County Votes app, or by requesting an application by mail by countacting the Elections Office at 908-527-4996 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Election Office is located at the County Clerk’s Main Office in the Union County Courthouse at 2 Broad Street in midtown Elizabeth. To access the Election Office during special Saturday Vote-by-Mail hours, voters must use the rear entrance of the Courthouse on Elizabethtown Plaza. The Election Office is located in Room 113.
The Annex Office in Westfield is located in the Colleen Fraser Building at the Union County complex, at 300 North Avenue East. Street and lot parking are available, and mass transit is nearby.
