“As a former school board member, Mayor and Freeholder myself, I know the importance of an informed electorate,” Ms. Rajoppi said. “My website is designed to help voters familiarize themselves with local candidates in all 21 Union County municipalities. The free app, Union County Votes, is another way to access election information for those who use a mobile device.”
The names of candidates running for the Republican or Democratic nominations for the New Jersey General Assembly, County Clerk, County Freeholders and Municipal offices in the June 2 Primary Election are posted at www.ucnj.org/sample-ballots.

The app is available for Apple and Android devices and it has active hyperlinks, phone numbers and e-mail addresses.
“The Union County Votes app enables voters to view sample ballots, find their polling place, request vote-by-mail ballot applications and voter registration forms,” Ms. Rajoppi added. “The app also provides information for people interested in becoming poll workers or running for office, including election filing dates and district maps.”
