WESTFIELD – Vote-By-Mail ballots for the Westfield Board of Education’s upcoming Special Election will be available beginning on Tuesday, Sept. 4, through the County Clerk’s Westfield or Elizabeth offices.
The Special Election in Westfield, scheduled for Monday, Sept. 24, from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., involves a $16.9 million school bond referendum.
“Registered voters in Westfield may obtain a Vote-By-Mail ballot for the Special Election by visiting my website or my offices in Westfield or Elizabeth,” said Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi. “The service at the Westfield office, with its convenient Saturday office hours and evening hours during the week, makes voting more accessible for voters unable to go to the polls in person on Sept. 24.”
The opportunity to Vote-By-Mail in Westfield and Elizabeth is another service available at the County Clerk’s two offices, along with passport application and renewal services, registration of Trade Names, and the application and swearing in of Notaries Public.
The Westfield Annex of the County Clerk is located at 300 North Avenue East. Office hours are 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays; 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays; and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays.
The Main Office of the County Clerk is located at the Union County Courthouse, 2 Broad Street, Room 113, Elizabeth. Regular office hours in Elizabeth are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

To obtain an application form, voters can download the form at the Union County Clerk’s website: www.ucnj.org/government/county-clerk/vote-by-mail or they can contact the Union County Clerk at 1-908-527-4996.
