Recording times delayed due to COVID-19

The Clerk’s Office is experiencing delays in the recording of its land documents — which now may take as much as 6-8 weeks from the time of receipt.

Please know that Clerk staff are working hard to meet demand. We ask your patience during these trying times.

County Clerk extends hours for in-person voting

County Clerk Jeff Parrott announced that his office will be open extended hours on  Saturday, July 4th from 9 a.m. to noon to accommodate in-person voting.  The Board of Elections will be in to receive voted ballots during those hours as well.

While it’s too late for the Clerk’s Office to mail ballots to voters after June 30th, anyone who did not already receive a mail-in ballot or who won’t be able to make it to the polls on Election Day can still apply for a ballot in person at the Clerk’s Office during regular office hours up through July 7th.

Voters applying in person need to wear a mask and must maintain social distancing once they arrive.

The County Clerk’s Office is located on the main floor of the Cochran House Building at 83 Spring Street in Newton, Suite 304, accessible from either Spring Street (front entrance) or Trinity Street (rear entrance). More information about voting can be obtained by calling 973-579-0900 or by visiting the Clerk’s Website at www.sussexcountyclerk.org.
