UNION COUNTY, NJ -- Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi was nationally recognized for her leadership in the use of electronic recording technology.

Rajoppi was presented with the national 2016 eRecording All-Star Trailblazer Award, a competitive recognition sponsored by the global business solutions company Corporation Service Company. The Trailblazer award recognizes a recording office that has established itself as a state leader in promoting the use of eRecording. Union County was one of only five counties selected in four different categories out of the 1,200 eligible counties reviewed for the 2016 awards.  

In 2016 Rajoppi’s office electronically recorded 9,723 documents, far surpassing the total of 7,425 documents in 2015.

“The growth of eRecording in Union County also reflects the eagerness of our community to take advantage of new technology that offers convenience and 24/7 availability,” said Rajoppi.

In addition to becoming an early adopter of eRecording, Ms. Rajoppi was the second County Clerk in the country and the first in New Jersey to introduce a free mobile app for voter information, called Union County Votes.

Last fall, Rajoppi also introduced a new website, unioncountyvotes.com, to help ensure that voters and election followers can access information quickly and conveniently.
