Union County, NJ – Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi reminds voters that polls are open from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 3 for the 2015 General and School Board Elections. 

“To ensure that your voice will be heard on Election Day, plan ahead and make plenty of time to get to your polling place before it closes,” said Rajoppi.

To find polling places, voters can use a simple online search tool at the “Where do I vote?” link on the County Clerk’s website,

Union County residents can also get polling place locations and other important election information on their mobile devices by downloading the Union County Votes app, or by calling the County Clerk at 908-527-4996.

“If you don’t think you can get to the polls in person, there is still time to use a Vote-By-Mail ballot,” said Rajoppi, “But don’t delay, as the Vote-By-Mail deadlines are coming up soon.”

Any registered voter can use a Vote-By-Mail ballot. The deadline for applying for a Vote-By-Mail ballot in person at the County Clerk’s main Elizabeth office and Westfield annex office is November 2, before 3:00 p.m. Voters can apply for the ballot, receive it on the spot, fill it out, and return it to a secure drop box at these two offices, all in one visit. 

The Clerk’s Office in Elizabeth will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. this Saturday, October 31, 2015 for voters wishing to obtain a Vote-By-Mail Ballot.  The Westfield Office is also open on Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Tuesday October 27 is the last day to apply for a Vote-By-Mail ballot by mailing in an application form. Downloadable forms are available at
