at Westfield & Elizabeth Offices for June 5 Presidential Primary
Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi announces that a “One-Stop” service will soon be available for Union County voters at the Westfield and Elizabeth offices of the County Clerk.
“Beginning on Tuesday, May 1, eligible voters will be able to apply for a Vote-By-Mail ballot for the Presidential Primary Election in person at either one of my offices, receive their ballot and cast the ballot at the same time,” Ms. Rajoppi said. “This one-stop voting service will be available at my Westfield office as well as at the main office in Elizabeth.”
“The service in Westfield and Elizabeth makes voting more accessible, particularly at the Westfield office with its convenient Saturday office hours and evening hours during the week,” Ms. Rajoppi added. “With the important June 5 Presidential Primary Election just a few weeks away, my office is working to make the voting process as fast and convenient as we can for everyone who is registered to vote.”
The opportunity to Vote-By-Mail in Westfield and Elizabeth is another service available at the County Clerk’s two offices, along with passport application and renewal services, registration of Trade Names, and the application and swearing in of Notaries Public.
The Westfield Annex of the County Clerk is located at 300 North Avenue East, Westfield 07090. Office hours are 8:00 a.m. – 7:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays; 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays; and 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. on Saturdays.
The Main Office of the County Clerk is located at the Union County Courthouse, 2 Broad Street, Room 113, Elizabeth, NJ 07207. Regular office hours in Elizabeth are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m.
to 4:30 p.m.
Vote-By-Mail is an easy, secure process that has replaced the Absentee Ballot. Voters do not need to give a reason why they wish to Vote-By-Mail. To obtain an application form, voters also may pick up the form at their local municipal building; they can download the form at the Union County Clerk’s website: www.ucnj.org/government/county-clerk/vote-by-mail or they can contact the Union County Clerk
at 908-527-4996. The Clerk’s website also includes a video that explains how to fill out the Vote-By-Mail application form.
