How to Vote
Step 1 – Register to Vote
The registrant must download the Voter Registration form and mail the hard copy to the Union County Board of Elections. The registration deadline to vote at the next election is 21 days prior to election day.

Vote by Mail
In New Jersey, any voter can now vote by mail in any election. You do not need a reason to Vote by Mail. Don’t feel like going to the polls? Simply vote by mail. Now there is “no excuse” not to vote!
A voter may vote by mail by completing the Application for Vote by Mail Ballot (see below), and returning the application to one of the two Union County Clerk offices.
To receive your ballot by mail, the application must be received by the County Clerk 7 days prior to the election.
A voter may also apply in person to the County Clerk until 3:00 p.m., the day before the election.
The County Clerk cannot accept faxed or emailed copies of a Application for Vote by Mail Ballot, unless you are a Military or Overseas Voter, since an original signature is required.
