Union County Clerk Offers Free Wall Calendar with County History and 2011 Election Year Information

ELIZABETH, NJ – Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi is pleased to offer a free 2011 wall calendar that honors the activities of County Clerks throughout Union County’s history and includes important dates of concern to voters and candidates for office in upcoming state and local elections.

“Union County – which was part of Essex County until 1857 – is a Who’s Who of historically significant figures,” said Ms. Rajoppi. “It is my hope that this 2011 calendar, with its vintage photographs and drawings, honors the memory of the men and women who have served the people of the Union County area so well since the 18th century.”

In addition to 12 photographs of those who have served as Union County Clerk since 1857, the calendar includes pictures of the first Union County Courthouse, originally built in 1811 as the Elizabeth City Hall, and scenes of various Clerks performing their official functions.

Since 2011 is a year of elections to the New Jersey State Legislature as well as to 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 2011 Election Year calendars, visit the Union County Clerk’s web where you’ll find an order form. For general information about elections, please contact the County Clerk’s Election Office at 908-527-4996.
