Electronic Filing For Candidates and Committees
 

Welcome to the Next Generation of the E-Filings (Short Forms) for candidates and committees. They can now be filled out and filed through any browser; on your smart phone or tablet. However‚ if you still need assistance‚ our help desk is a phone call away. Contact the Help Desk for Electronic Filing by calling (609) 292–8700 or‚ toll free (within New Jersey) at 1 (888) 313–ELEC (3532) for assistance to file the short forms.

If you are a constant user of this site‚ you will find that the process is slightly different. A registration number and PIN are still required; however‚ after pressing the button to “File With ELEC” you will receive a CONFIRMATION MESSAGE. Do not delete this message as it contains further instructions and a link to retrieve your date–stamped filed form. You will need to print a copy of your filed form for your records and for filing with your county clerk.

  • All required fields need to be completed.

  • After you have completed the form‚ click the “File with ELEC” button.
