Role of County Clerk

Each County in the State of New Jersey is required by law to have a County Clerk as an elected constitutional officer.

In general, the Morris County Clerk's office records and maintains land records, such as Maps, Mortgages, Deeds and other related legal documents.

This office processes passport applications, issues I.D. cards to Morris County residents, and maintains Military Discharges (DD214) for veterans. All businesses and doctors are required by law to be recorded by the Clerks office, as is the administration and swearing in of Notary Publics.

The Clerk's office administers several important election functions, and has responsibilities for general, primary, school board and special elections. Some of the election services provided include the preparation and mailing of election ballots, nomination petitions, and election night voting results.

Additionally, the office prepares the Morris County Manual, and the Clerk also performs over a hundred Marriage Ceremonies annually.
