Union County Clerk Updates Voters on Vote by Mail Ballots for the 2024 Primary Election

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 all registered Voters on the permanent vote by mail list in Union County.  The process will take about a week with over 50,000 ballots being sent out. The ballots are sent in bright yellow envelopes to help voters avoid misplacing their ballot.

County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi advises voters that the Democratic primary vote by mail ballot will look dramatically different due to a statewide court order mandating an office-block format for this primary election.  The order prohibits the use of the organizational line for Democrats although slogans are permitted.  The Republican ballot is not affected and will appear as it usually does.

Ms. Rajoppi urges voters to review the ballot carefully before voting.  Voters are urged to contact the Clerk’s office with any concerns or questions.

Ms. Rajoppi has a “How to Vote a Vote by Mail Ballot” video on the Clerks website to assist voters with the process of filling them out and Mailing the ballots back. Residents can view the video at:
