In accordance with a statewide Executive Order issued by New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, the 2020 General Election is being conducted primarily through Vote-by-Mail ballots.

To avoid overwhelming the U.S. Postal Service with a high volume of mail all at once, the County Clerk’s Elections Division is sending vote-by-mail ballots to all registered voters in scheduled waves. The first wave covered voters who have not changed their registration in recent months.

The second wave, currently under way and will conclude before Oct. 24, involves voters who have recently registered to vote in Union County, or who recently changed their registration due to a move. 

After Oct. 24, voters who have not received their vote-by-mail ballot in the mail are advised to contact the Elections Division of the County Clerk by phone at 908-527-4996, or by email at For more information about the County Clerk’s election services visit For information about all County Clerk programs and services, visit or call 908-527-4787.
