Application Guidelines
1) Contact the municipal city clerk or district filing location to confirm that your registered address qualifies you for the position you intend to run for, and that you meet other office specific qualifications. 2) Complete the application and fulfill any petition signature requirements or prepare a filing fee. If you have questions regarding this paperwork, the best thing to do is to call the filing office--often the City Clerk for city positions, or the district secretary office for school boards--or (even better) schedule an appointment with them regarding any questions. Most elections offices are happy to schedule time for candidates, and it is generally understood that first time candidates will have more questions. 3) Submit the filing papers accompanied by either the application fee or nominating papers by the date on our website. If you are considering running as a Democrat or Republican, you will have to file 64 days prior to the date listed (the date on our site is for an independent candidate). If you have any further questions, contact the Bergen County Board of Elections at (201) 336-6225 or visit their website at
