Union County Clerk Offers Free Wall Calendar Featuring Women Trailblazers and 2012 Election Year Information

ELIZABETH, NJ – Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi is pleased to offer a free 2012 wall calendar that honors the judicial and governmental careers of women trailblazers throughout Union County’s history and includes important dates of concern to voters and candidates for office in upcoming federal, state and local elections.

“Union County – which was part of Essex County until 1857 – is a Who’s Who of historically significant individuals,” said Ms. Rajoppi. “It is my hope that this 2012 calendar, with its vintage photographs, honors the memory of the pioneering women judicial and governmental leaders who have served the people of the Union County area so well for the past century.”

Since 2012 is a presidential election year that also will have elections for a U.S. Senate seat, county, school board and municipal offices, the calendar highlights many important dates relating to voter registration, mail-in ballots, candidate petition deadlines, primary elections, campaign finance reports, and general election ballot deadlines.

To obtain one of the 2012 Election Year calendars, visit the Union County Clerk’s web site: www.ucnj.org/government/county-clerk where you’ll find an order form. For general information about elections, please contact the County Clerk’s Election Office at 908-527-4996.
