Union County Clerk Alerts New Registered Voters on Vote-by-Mail Ballots

Voters who have recently moved or recently registered to vote in Union County are scheduled to receive their ballots over the next 2-1/2 weeks.

Union County, NJ – Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi advises voters who have not yet received their ballots for the 2020 General Election that they will receive them over the next 2-1/2 weeks.

“The process of sending Vote-by-Mail ballots to voters in Union County is still under way,” said Ms. Rajoppi. “If you have recently registered to vote in Union County, or if you have recently changed your registration due to a move, your ballot will be mailed to you within the next 2-1/2 weeks.”

In accordance with a statewide Executive Order issued by New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, the 2020 General Election is being conducted primarily through Vote-by-Mail ballots.

To avoid overwhelming the U.S. Postal Service with a high volume of mail all at once, the County Clerk’s Elections Division is sending Vote-by-Mail ballots to all registered voters in scheduled waves. The first wave covered voters who have not changed their registration in recent months.

The second wave involves voters who have recently registered to vote in Union County, or who recently changed their registration due to a move.

The second wave is currently under way and will conclude before October 24.

After October 24, voters who have not received their Vote-by-Mail ballot in the mail are advised to contact the Elections Division of the County Clerk by phone at 908-527-4996, or by email at
