Single Signature Electronic Candidate Petitions
Effective immediately as a measure to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, candidate’s can now obtain signatures electronically on a nominating petition.

Pledge of Allegiance
Executive Order 105 signed by Governor Murphy on March 19, 2020 states that “candidates who have not already signed and notarized an Oath of Allegiance shall attach a signed Pledge of Allegiance to their petitions containing the same language as prescribed in N.J.S.A. 41:1-1”. If you are a candidate and you have not already signed and notarized an Oath of Allegiance, please complete a Pledge of Allegiance.
Additionally, Executive Order 105 states “The verification requirements of N.J.S.A. 19:23-11, insofar as they are not included on the online form created by the Secretary of State, shall be suspended for petitions due by 4:00 p.m. on March 30, 2020.” Please be advised that the Affidavit of Circulator page does not need to be notarized. A circulator would still need to Print and Sign their name and include their address.
