UNION COUNTY, NJ – Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi is pleased to announce that sample ballots for the June 6 Primary Election are now available on the Union County Votes mobile app for Apple and Android devices, and on the County Clerk’s election website at unioncountyvotes.com.

“Sample ballots are being mailed to every eligible voter as always, and these online tools enable voters to get the same information quickly and conveniently on their computers, laptops or mobile devices,” said Ms. Rajoppi. “This year is the first time in four years that New Jersey voters will elect a governor, so it is especially important to become familiar with the ballot before entering the voting booth.”

“The Union County Votes website is designed to follow the format of the app, so users can navigate seamlessly from one platform to the other,” said Ms. Rajoppi.

Ms. Rajoppi also reminded Union County residents that any registered voter can cast their vote early for any reason, by using a Vote-By-Mail ballot.

Voters should allow 3-5 business to mail their ballot back in time to be counted on Primary Day.

The deadline for requesting a Vote-By-Mail ballot by mail is May 30. Voters can obtain a Vote-By-Mail ballot in person by visiting the County Clerk’s Main Office in Elizabeth or the Annex in Westfield up until Monday, June 5, at 3:00 p.m.

Voters who obtain their Vote-by-Mail ballot in person can also use the County Clerk’s convenient One-Stop service to fill out their ballot and cast it in a secure collection box, all in the same visit.

“If you find yourself running short on time as June 6 approaches, the One-Stop service helps to ensure that your voice will be heard in this important gubernatorial election cycle,” said Ms. Rajoppi.

Under a new state law, voters who opt to use the One-Stop service will need to show a New Jersey driver’s license or other New Jersey ID that provides their name, address and photo.

For complete details on all County Clerk election services, including Vote-By-Mail deadlines and extended office hours for One-Stop service, call 908-527-4996, download the free Union County Votes app or visit online at unioncountyvotes.com.
