Union County Early Voting and Election Day Information
Registered Union County voters who wish to vote early in person can still vote today, Monday November 5, until 4:30 p.m. To vote early in person, come to the County Clerk’s offices at 2 Broad Street in Elizabeth or 300 North Avenue East in Westfield. These are the only two locations for in-person early voting.
A remote voting process is in place for registered voters who have been forced to relocate outside of Union County due to Hurricane Sandy. This process involves using email (access to a printer and scanner will be needed) or a fax machine. This process can be started at any time on Monday, November 5, up until 5:00 p.m. on Election Day. Instructions are available at the County Clerk’s website, ucnj.org/ votebymail.
Almost all Union County polling places are expected to be open on Election Day, Tuesday November 6. An updated list will be available later today.
Voters who wish to vote in person but who cannot travel to their assigned polling place should be aware that the State Division of Elections has authorized any registered voter to cast a provisional ballot at any polling place in New Jersey on Election Day, Tuesday November 6.
A complete list of polling places in New Jersey is available online at the New Jersey Department of State “Polling Place Search” page. For questions about polling locations in Union County, voters can also call the Board of Elections at 908-527-4123.
