The deadline for applying by mail for a Vote by Mail ballot is Tuesday, November 1.

“If you are mailing your Vote by Mail application, by law my office must receive your application form by November 1,” said Union County Clerk JoanneRajoppi. “The deadline ensures that we can provide your Vote by Mail ballot in time for you to cast it, so please put your application in the mail by Saturday, October 29, to allow time for delivery.”

Any registered voter can use a Vote by Mail ballot. The process involves submitting an application form, receiving the ballot, and returning it to the Board of Elections. The entire process can be done by mail.

Emailing a scanned application form is not permitted under New Jersey state law. However, voters can drop off their application forms in person.

“Voters who miss the November 1 mailing deadline still have time to apply for a Vote by Mail ballot in person,” said Rajoppi. “They can do so by visiting our main office in Elizabeth or annex in Westfield.”

In-person applicants can use the County Clerk’s “One-Stop” service to apply for their ballot and receive it in the same visit. They can also fill out their ballot while they are there, and cast it in a secure box at the County Clerk’s office.

Vote by Mail users who plan on dropping off their filled-in ballot in person, or using the One-Stop service, have until 3:00 p.m. on Monday, November 7, to visit the County Clerk’s main or annex offices and cast their ballot.

“We offer the ‘One-Stop’ service to ensure that all voters can avail themselves of the convenience and security of a Vote by Mail ballot,” said Rajoppi. “My office also schedules extra Saturday hours in order to accommodate as many in-person applicants as possible.”

Rajoppi also advised voters who are interested in using a Vote by Mail ballot to download the free Union County Votes app for mobile devices.

“Union County Votes has just added a new button labeled “Early Voting,” said Rajoppi. “It provides voters with on-the-go access to information about obtaining and casting a Vote by Mail ballot.”

The County Clerk's main office at 2 Broad Street in Elizabeth will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday November 5, for voters to obtain a Vote by Mail ballot.

The annex, at 300 North Avenue East in Westfield, is also open for Vote by Mail users on Saturday October 29 and Saturday November 5 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
