Deadline To Apply By Mail For A Vote-By-Mail Application October 27th

The last day for Roselle Park registered voters to apply by mail for a Vote-By-Mail ballot is Tuesday, October 27th. After then, voters wishing to use Vote-By-Mail must apply in person at the County Clerk’s Main office in Elizabeth or the Annex in Westfield.

The last day to apply in person to Vote-By-Mail is Monday, November 2, before 3:00 p.m.

Vote-By-Mail is available to any voter who will be in the area on November 3rd, election day, or would simply like to vote and be done with it before election day.

To help make the Vote-By-Mail process as simple as possible, the Union County Clerk’s office has introduced a ‘One-Stop’ service in the Westfield Annex and Elizabeth Main offices for those wishing to apply in-person. Eligible voters can come to either office, apply for a Vote-By-Mail ballot, and cast it on the spot.

A new State law enacted in time for the General Election requires voters wishing to leave their voted ballot in the Clerk’s lock box to show identification which includes their name, address, and signature.

Vote-By-Mail applications can also be picked up at any Roselle Park Borough Hall at 100 West Westfield Avenue, downloaded from the County Clerk’s website (link), or requested through the new Union County Votes mobile app. Any wishing to have an application mailed to them should call the County Clerk at (908) 527-4996.
