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.

- All required fields need to be completed.
- After you have completed the form click the File with ELEC button.
- If successfully filed a CONFIRMATION MESSAGE containing a Confirmation Number will appear in place of the filed document. Follow the instructions on the Confirmation Message page to open your filed form save and print two copies of the form (one for your records and one for filing with the county clerk).
