UNION COUNTY, NJ -- The deadline for voters to utilize the convenient Vote-By-Mail service are coming up quickly in advance of the Tuesday, Nov. 3, General and School Board elections.
The last day to apply by mail for a Vote-By-Mail ballot is Tuesday, Oct. 27. After that, voters wishing to use Vote-By-Mail must apply in person at the County Clerk’s main office in Elizabeth, or the Annex in Westfield. The last day to apply in person is Monday, Nov. 2, before 3 p.m.
To help make the Vote-By-Mail process as simple as possible, Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi introduced “One-Stop” service in the Westfield Annex and Elizabeth Main offices (2 Broad St.) for those wishing to apply in person. Eligible voters can come to either office, apply for a Vote-By-Mail ballot, and cast it on the spot. All Vote-By-Mail ballots must be received by the Board of Elections by the close of the polls, 8:00 p.m, on Election Day to be counted.
Vote-By-Mail applications can also be picked up at any municipal clerk’s office, downloaded from the County Clerk’s website at ucnj.org/vote-by-mail, or requested through the new Union County Votes mobile app. To have an application mailed to you, call the County Clerk at 908-527-4996.
