Union County Clerk Provides Extra Hours for Voters

Union County, NJ – Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi advises residents that the County Clerk’s offices in Elizabeth and Westfield will be open for additional hours in advance of the July 7 Primary, for voters in need of guidance with Vote-by-Mail ballots and other aspects of the election.

In addition to regular weekday hours, both offices will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturday June 20 and Saturday June 27.

Both offices will also remain open until 8:00 p.m. on Thursday July 2, Monday July 6, and Tuesday July 7 (Election Day).

“My staff has been available to assist voters by phone and email throughout the COVID-19 crisis, and we continue to offer remote assistance while gradually adding in-person services in accordance with statewide guidelines,” said Ms. Rajoppi.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, all visitors to the County Clerk’s office must wear masks and maintain a distance of at least six feet apart from others.

The County Clerk’s main office is located in the County Courthouse, at 2 Broad Street in midtown Elizabeth. The annex office is located in Colleen Fraser Building, in the County Services complex at 300 North Avenue East in Westfield.

Ms. Rajoppi also reminds voters that Vote-by-Mail ballots are being sent out in waves to registered Democrats and Republicans. Most voters have already received their ballots, while others will receive theirs this week.
