Electronic Filing

For Parties and PACs

Welcome to the Next Generation of the E-Filings (Short Forms) for political party committees, legislative leadership committees and continuing political 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.
