FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Voters can apply for their ballot in person, fill it out, and cast it in the same visit.
Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi reminds residents that the County Clerk’s office in Westfield is now 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.”
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.
Approximately 40,000 voters in Union County are on a permanent Vote-by-Mail list. Ballots were mailed to all permanent Vote-by-Mail voters last week.
Voters who are not on the permanent list must submit an application in order to receive their Vote-by-Mail ballot.
