The County Clerk’s Office is currently undergoing a major technology upgrade. Unfortunately, that upgrade resulted in some incompatibilities, temporarily limiting access to our onsite digitized land records.
We apologize for this inconvenience and want you to know our information technology staff are working hard to correct the problem. In the interim, land records recorded from 1950 to present can be viewed via our web search engine. Records prior to 1950 can be searched in our records room in book/paper form.
If you’re planning to visit the Clerk’s Office to search onsite records, please call ahead to confirm the system is working properly (973-579-0900) before making the trip.

Beginning at 3 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 9th, the County Clerk’s Office conducted an official ballot draw to determine candidate order for the upcoming Nov. 2, 2021 General Election. Find Results Here.
An official drawing to determine ballot position for races on this November’s general election will be conducted at the County Clerk’s Office August 9th at 3 p.m.
Because County Clerk Jeff Parrott is running for office this year and his name is on the ballot, Deputy Clerk Angela Rosa will be conducting the draw in his place.
The draw will first determine which of the two major parties will appear in first position on the ballot, and then will determine order among candidates in specific races.
Once available, the result of the drawings will be posted to the Clerk’s website under “Who’s On the Ballot.”
