New Video Shows Union County Voters How to Vote By Mail

Union County, NJ – In order to help Union County voters familiarize themselves with Vote-by-Mail procedures, Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi has posted a new video titled, “How to Vote a Vote-by-Mail Ballot” on the County Clerk’s elections website,

The video is also available on the free Union County Votes app for mobile devices.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy has mandated that the July 7 election will be conducted primarily by Vote-by-Mail.

“For many voters, this election will be the first time they are using a Vote-by-Mail ballot. I encourage all voters to watch the video to ensure they are filling out and returning their ballot correctly,” said Ms. Rajoppi.

Ms. Rajoppi’s office has already begun mailing ballots to Union County voters, a process that is expected to take approximately two more weeks due to the volume of mail involved.

Ms. Rajoppi also encouraged voters to read the Vote-by-Mail FAQ’s available on the County Clerk’s elections website, and on the free Union County Votes mobile app.

“After learning about Vote-by-Mail through these online resources, voters who still have questions about the process can contact my office,” said Ms. Rajoppi. “My staff is available to help during regular business hours by phone or email.”
