The Borough Clerk’s office has three notaries on staff. Our office only notarizes documents for borough residents. A notary is a witness to a signature. The person whose signature is being notarized must be present with identification. Our staff only handles simple notaries. We do not notarize documents which require a witness and/or witnessess to be provided in addition to the notary. Please take any paperwork requiring a complex notary to an attorney.


Those couples who are Runnemede residents should take note. Applications for marriage licenses are by appointment only. The fee is $28.00 by check or money order. No cash will be accepted.  Applicants must bring a witness who is 18 years of age or older. Divorced applicants should try to produce a final divorce decree and widows or widowers should furnish a certified death certificate.  Applicants who have been in prior civil unions or domestic partnerships must furnish proof of dissolution of those unions.  If applicants have been married in another state, please furnish copy of marriage license, as your marriage in New Jersey will be considered a remarriage.  Applicants should know in what state or country each of their parents were born as well as the maiden name of their mothers.  Applicants may provide birth certificates to help with spelling of parents’ names. Photo identification and social security numbers are required.
