Union County Clerk Extends Office Hours, June 1 for Primary Election Voters Using Mail-In Ballots

Union County, NJ – Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi announces that her Main Office in Elizabeth will be open for special hours on Saturday, June 1st from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. for voters seeking last-minute mail-in ballots for the Primary Election on Tuesday, June 4th. The County Clerk’s Annex Office in Westfield will also be open on June 1st for its regular Saturday hours from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

“Any registered voter can use a Vote-by-Mail ballot for any reason,” said Ms. Rajoppi. “This special Saturday opening in Elizabeth helps ensure that voters can cast their Vote-by-Mail ballot in time to participate in the Primary Election. Voters can also use our Westfield office during regular Saturday hours to cast their mail-in ballot.”

The County Clerk’s office is located at the Union County Courthouse, 2 Broad Street, room 113 in Elizabeth. The Colleen Fraser Building is located at 300 North Avenue East in Westfield. Both will be open on June 1st for voters who choose the Vote-By-Mail option for the Primary Election.

Vote-by-Mail is New Jersey’s form of early voting. Under a 2005 state law, any eligible voter may vote early by using a Vote-by-Mail ballot.

Voters can obtain their Vote-by-Mail Application, receive their ballot, fill it out, and cast it in a secure lock box at the Elizabeth or Westfield offices, all in one convenient “One-Stop” visit.

Voters using the One-Stop service have until Monday, June 3rd at 3:00 p.m. to obtain their ballot.

Under a 2017 state law, voters must show a valid New Jersey driver’s license or non-driver’s license in order to leave the ballot in a secured lock box.

To visit the Elections Office in Elizabeth during the special June 1st hours, use the rear entrance of the Courthouse Complex and proceed to Room 113.
