Union County, NJ – Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi reminds Union County residents that the County Clerks’ Elections Office in Elizabeth and Westfield will be open for special hours on Saturday, November 3 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., for anyone wishing to obtain an application for a Vote-By-Mail ballot in person. The deadline for mailing in Vote-By-Mail applications has passed.
Voters may also apply for a Vote-by-Mail ballot in person at both locations during regular weekday office hours until Monday, November 5 at 3:00 p.m.
“If desired, voters can apply for a Vote-by-Mail ballot, fill out their ballot and cast it in a secure collection box at the Elizabeth or Westfield office, all in one visit,” said Ms. Rajoppi. “I encourage voters to use Vote-by-Mail, and my office provides this ‘One-Stop’ service to help ensure that the process is user-friendly and convenient.”
To cast a Vote-by-Mail ballot in person at the Elizabeth and Westfield offices, a 2015 state law requires voters to provide a New Jersey driver’s license or New Jersey identification card with their photo, name, address and signature.
Voters not using the County Clerk’s One-Stop service must return their Vote-by-Mail ballots to the Union County Board of Elections in person by Election Day, or mail it in time to be postmarked by Election Day.
Voters can also download a Vote-by-Mail application through the County Clerk’s unioncountyvotes.com elections website and Union County Votes app, or request an application by mail by contacting the Elections Office at 908-527-4996 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Election Office is located at the County Clerk’s Main Office in the Union County Courthouse at 2 Broad Street in midtown Elizabeth. To access the Election Office during special Saturday Vote-by-Mail hours, voters must use the rear entrance of the Courthouse on Elizabethtown Plaza. The Election Office is located in Room 113.
The Annex Office in Westfield is located in the Colleen Fraser Building at the Union County complex, at 300 North Avenue East. Street and lot parking are available, and mass transit is nearby.
