Press Release

For Immediate Release: October 7, 2016

Visit the New UnionCountyVotes.com Website for 2016 General Election Information

unioncountyvotes-screenshotUnion County, NJ – Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi is pleased to announce the launch of UnionCountyVotes.com, a new website that provides voters and election followers with complete information on the November 8th General Election.

“UnionCountyVotes.com is designed to provide the public with information in a simple, easy-to-follow format that resembles our free Union County Votes mobile app,” said Rajoppi. “It is especially convenient for people who need to view websites in large type.”

Ms. Rajoppi noted that members of the public can still access the same information on the Union County website by visiting ucnj.org/county-clerk and following the links on the left column of the page. The links will automatically direct users to the new website.

“With UnionCountyVotes.com, you can get one-click access to all of our election information in one convenient website,” said Ms. Rajoppi. “And, because the new site is hosted off-site, it provides an extra layer of reliability for important Election Day information.”

Widespread disruptions of Internet service are rare but they can occur. In 2012, Hurricane Sandy knocked out Internet and phone service in parts of New Jersey, including Union County.

More recently, last August utility workers accidentally cut a cable in Elizabeth, resulting in outages in part of Union County.

The Union County Votes mobile app was launched in 2014, available as a free download for mobile phones and tablets.

“If you have a question about the upcoming elections and you can’t find the answer online, you can call the County Clerk Elections Division at 908-527-4996 or come to our Main Office or Annex in person, and my staff will be happy to assist you,” said Rajoppi.

The Main Office of the County Clerk is located at the Union County Courthouse, 2 Broad Street, Room 113 in midtown Elizabeth. Regular office hours in Elizabeth are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. This office will also be open on Saturday, November 5, 2016 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. to assist voters wishing to Vote-By-Mail.

The County Clerk’s Annex is located in the Colleen Fraser Building at the County services complex, 300 North Avenue East in Westfield. Office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturdays.

For more details about convenient One-Stop Vote-by-Mail service, and all County Clerk programs and services including passports and deed recording, visit online at ucnj.org/county-clerk or call 908-527-4787.
