ELIZABETH, NJ--Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi reminds Union County residents that the County Clerks’ Elections Office in Elizabeth and Westfield will be open for special hours on Saturday, November 4 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 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,” Rajoppi said. “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 through the County Clerk’s unioncountyvotes.com elections website and Union County Votes app, or request an application by mail by contacting the Elections Office at 908-527-4996 or ucvote@ucnj.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.
