The Vote by Mail ballots are being sent in in bright yellow envelopes with “OFFICIAL MAIL-IN BALLOT/BOLETA OFICIAL POR CORREO” printed in bold, black lettering to the right of the addressee window.
Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi advises voters that Vote-by-Mail ballots for the June 6 primary are now being mailed out to voters who have opted to automatically receive their ballots. Due to the large volume of mail involved, the ballots are being mailed in batches over the next several days, by town and legislative district.
To help ensure that the ballots are not mistaken for junk mail, they are sent in bright yellow envelopes with “OFFICIAL MAIL-IN BALLOT/BOLETA OFICIAL POR CORREO” printed in bold, black lettering to the right of the addressee window.
“Union County voters who have signed up to receive their Vote by Mail ballots automatically should expect their ballots to arrive within eight days of the mailing,” said Ms. Rajoppi. “Please follow the instructions carefully, fill it out, and mail it back as soon as possible to avoid accidentally misplacing or discarding it.”
Voters can visit the County Clerk’s elections website at unioncountyvotes.com/mail-in-ballot-mail-dates to see if their ballot has been mailed to them.
The first batch of Vote by Mail ballots was mailed on April 21 to voters in Berkeley Heights, Garwood, and New Providence. The second batch was mailed on April 24 to Mountainside, Springfield, Summit and Westfield. Voters can call the County Clerk’s office at 908-527-4996 if their ballot does not arrive within eight days of the scheduled mailing.
Each ballot includes pre-paid return postage and detailed instructions. After filling out the ballot, voters should place it in the return envelope and check to see that their home address appears in the see-through window.
