About the Bureau of Vital Statistics

The Bureau of Vital Statistics is conducted under the supervision of the Township Registrar. The Registrar’s office is required to see that all births, marriages, deaths, civil unions and partnerships that take place within the Township of Livingston borders are properly recorded locally and with the State Vital Statistic Office in Trenton. Certified copies of vital statistics records, marriage, civil union and partnership licenses, and burial permits are issued by this division. Census track mortality statistics are also kept on file.
