Vote-by-Mail Ballots Now Available at the Union County Clerk’s Offices in Elizabeth and Westfield

Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi reminds voters who wish to use a Vote-by-Mail ballot that they can apply for one in person at the County Clerk’s offices in Westfield and Elizabeth. They can also fill out their ballot during the same visit and cast it in a secure drop-off box at the office, or take it with them to fill out later.

“We encourage voters to come to our offices and use our convenient ‘one-stop’ service, which enables voters to go through all the Vote-by-Mail steps in one visit,” said Ms. Rajoppi. “As a reminder, Vote-by-Mail ballots can also be returned by mail or deposited in any of the official, secure drop boxes in Union County, including one located at the entrance of our Westfield office.”

The County Clerk’s office in Westfield 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 County Clerk’s office in Elizabeth is located in the Union County Courthouse, at 2 Broad Street. Regular hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Approximately 42,000 voters in Union County automatically receive a Vote-by-Mail ballot by U.S. Post. Other Union County residents who wish to use a Vote-by-Mail ballot can obtain theirs in person at the County Clerk’s offices in Elizabeth or Westfield. Voters can also receive an application in the mail by contacting the County Clerk’s Elections Division at 908-527-4996 or ucvote@ucnj.org.

In addition, voters can download a Vote-by-Mail application from the County Clerk’s elections website, unioncountyvotes.com, or from the free Union County Votes mobile app.

Vote-by-Mail is one of three options that Union County voters can use this year to cast their vote in the General Election:

  1. Use a Vote-by-Mail ballot. In addition to early voting, Vote-by-Mail ballots can returned on Election Day, November 2. Drop boxes will be open until the polls close at 8:00 p.m. Ballots sent by mail must be postmarked by midnight on November 2.
  2. Vote early in person, by using any one of the seven central early voting polling places in Union County.
  3. Vote on Election Day in person, at the local polling place assigned to the voter.
