Union County Clerk Updates Voters on Vote-by-Mail Ballots

The County Clerk’s office in Elizabeth is located in the County Courthouse, at 2 Broad Street (access via Elizabethtown Plaza entrance on Saturday, June 4).

Ballots will be mailed to voters in bright yellow envelopes.

Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi announces that Vote by Mail Ballots are being mailed to registered voters in Union County in stages, according to Congressional District. The ballots are being sent in bright yellow envelopes to help voters avoid misplacing their ballot.

The first stage included Berkeley Heights, Clark, Fanwood, parts of Linden, Mountainside, New Providence, Scotch Plains, Springfield, Summit, Westfield and Winfield, all of which are in CD 7, along with the balance of Linden and the Township of Union, both of which are in CD 10. Vote-by-Mail voters in these municipalities can expect to receive their ballots this week.

As a reminder, voters should look for their ballot in a bright yellow envelope.

“My office is sending the ballots out in stages to help ensure that the U.S. Postal Service can handle the increased volume in an orderly manner and deliver all of them on time, to voters in every Union County municipality,” said Ms. Rajoppi. “I strongly encourage voters to fill out and return their Vote-by-Mail ballot as soon as they receive it, to account for any unforeseen delays.”

Voters can view the updated schedule of mailings on the County Clerk’s elections website, at The schedule is also available on the County Clerk’s free mobile app, UC Votes.

Voters can choose several ways to return their Vote-by-Mail ballot as early as possible before Election Day: by Postal Service (postage is pre-paid), secure drop-off box, or hand delivery to the County Clerk’s offices or Board of Elections office.

The drop-off boxes are available on a 24/7 basis until 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 8, when the polls close.

The Board of Elections office will be open for voters to hand deliver their vote by mail ballots until 8:00 p.m. on November 8. Voters who hand deliver their ballots to this office must sign a registry and present a valid New Jersey driver’s license or other New Jersey identification.
