Union County Clerk Encourages Voters to Use One-Stop Vote-by-Mail Service

Vote-by-Mail applications can be picked up in person at the Union County Clerk’s offices in Westfield and Elizabeth.

Union County, NJ – Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi reminds residents that the County Clerk’s offices in Westfield and Elizabeth are available to voters for “One-Stop” Vote-by-Mail service. Eligible voters can pick up an application for a Vote-by-Mail ballot, receive their ballot, and cast it in a secure drop-off box all in one visit.

“We encourage all voters to vote early by using a Vote-by-Mail ballot, and the One-Stop service makes it easy and convenient,” said Ms. Rajoppi. “As a reminder, voters who are not on the permanent Vote-by-Mail list will need to request an application if they would like to use a Vote-by-Mail ballot this year.”

The County Clerk’s Westfield office is located at the Colleen Frasier Building in the Union County Complex, at 300 North Avenue East. Regular office hours are Monday, Wednesday and Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.; Tuesday and Thursday 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.; and Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

The Elizabeth Office is located in the Union County Courthouse, at 2 Broad Street. Regular hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Starting on Saturday, May 1, the Elizabeth Office will also be open on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. for Vote-by-Mail services, leading up to Primary Election Day on June 8.

Approximately 35,000 voters in Union County are on a permanent list, and will automatically receive their ballots in the mail in the coming days. Voters on the permanent list can check the “Status of Vote by Mail Ballots” section on the home page of the Union County Clerk’s elections website, unioncountyvotes.com, to see when their ballots were mailed.
