Union County Clerk Offers New Service for “Vote By Mail” Ballot Applicants at Westfield Office for Nov. 8 General Election

WESTFIELD, NJ – Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi announces that a new service for Union County voters will soon be available at the Westfield Annex of the Clerk’s Office.

“Beginning on Monday, October 3, eligible voters will be able to apply for a Vote By Mail ballot in person at the Westfield Annex, receive their ballot and cast the ballot at the same time,” Ms. Rajoppi said. “This is the first time this one-stop voting service will be available at my Westfield office as well as at the main office in Elizabeth.”

“The new service in Westfield makes voting more accessible, particularly with convenient Saturday office hours and evening hours during the week,” Ms. Rajoppi added. “With the Nov. 8 General 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 is another service available at the County Clerk’s new facility, 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.
