Welcome to the website of the Mercer County Clerk. I am pleased to be able to provide you with a brief description of the broad range of services offered by the Clerk's office, along with a number of forms to obtain these services that can be easily downloaded.
The County Clerk's Office offers many services that Mercer residents and businesses use every day. It is the Clerk's Office that files and records all documents concerning real estate ownership and transfer; registers small business trade names, and processes U.S. passport applications; processes and issues County identification cards and notary public applications. Early in my administration we also began offering photos for people seeking passports and County ID cards as well, for public convenience. The Clerk also has certain election responsibilities including the counting of votes cast by electronic machines. In fact, we post election results for you on this site. Lastly, the Clerk is empowered to perform marriage ceremonies. We have opened a satellite office at the County Connection located in the Hamilton Square Shopping Center, Rt 33 and Paxson Avenue.
Please stop by and visit us and see how the Mercer County Clerk's Office can be of service to you. My staff and I are here to serve you. Our top priority is that you, Mercer County residents and businesses, receive what you pay for in excellent government service.
All the best,
Paula Sollami Covello
Mercer County Clerk
