Election-related duties include accepting voter registration applications, issuing and receiving nominating petitions for Borough elected positions, conducting local elections, and certifying election results.
The Borough Clerk maintains custody of all minutes, books, bonds, contracts, and archival records of the Borough and acts as a liaison to the public, correspondent on behalf of the Governing Body, and representative of the Borough's interests in relations with federal, state, and local units of government.
Licenses for raffles and bingo, limousines, towing, and various annual liquor licenses are issued through the Borough Clerk's office. The office also files grant applications on behalf of the Borough and notarizes documents for Oradell residents at no charge. Documents can be notarized at a nominal charge for non-residents.
