Let's bring back obtaining our birth certificates in Jersey City
This petition had 520 supporters
Several years ago, the Department of Health (DOH) determined that some birth certificates issued by the Hudson County Office of Vital Statistics in Jersey City were not valid and the security of the vital records was compromised.
As a result, DOH mandated that persons born in Jersey City seeking to obtain a certified copy of their birth certificate for identification purposes to obtain a passport or driver’s license would have to either obtain the birth certificate directly from DOH in Trenton or use the web-based system available through the DOH website.
In either case, this results in a delay and additional costs in obtaining the birth certificate. This is a delay that other State residents (not born in Jersey City) are not subject to because they can access the needed certificate quickly and easily by requesting it at their local vital statistics office. This bill, therefore, will restore the ability of persons born in Jersey City to obtain a copy of their birth certificates in the same manner as do other residents of the State.
