Union County Clerk Offers Extra Opening for Vote-By-Mail

vote-button-mdUnion County, NJ – Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi reminds Union County residents that her Main Office in Elizabeth has scheduled a special opening on Saturday, June 4 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. for anyone wishing to obtain a Vote-By-Mail ballot in person.

The Annex Office in Westfield is also open from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. for anyone wishing to obtain a Vote by Mail Ballot.

“If desired, voters can fill out their ballot and cast it in a secure collection box at the Election Office at the Main Office in Elizabeth, all in one convenient ‘One-Stop’ visit,” said Ms. Rajoppi. “The same One-Stop service is also available at the Annex Office in Westfield.”

The Election Office is in Room 113 of the Union County Courthouse complex at 2 Broad Street in midtown Elizabeth. To access it during the special Saturday hours on June 4, use the rear entrance of the Courthouse.

A new law enacted in 2015 requires voters wishing to deposit their voted ballot in the lockbox provide a photo id which includes the voter’s name, address and signature – most notably a NJ Driver’s License or NJ Identification Card.

The Elizabeth Office is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. for voting.  The Annex Office located in Westfield Office is open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 8:00 – 4:00; Tuesday and Thursday 8:00 a.m. – 7:30 p.m.; and Saturday 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.  Voters may apply in person up at both locations until Monday, June 5, 2016 at 3:00 p.m.

The Courthouse complex is easily accessible by mass transit, and ample public parking is located nearby at the J. Christian Bollwage Parking Garage.

The Annex Office is located at the Colleen Fraser Building in the county services complex at 300 North Avenue East in Westfield.
