Background Checks

The Monmouth County Democrats (“MCD”) may require Executive Committee Members, Candidates, Full-time Campaign Managers, Full-time Supervisors, applicants for employment to satisfactorily complete a background check. The MCD will consider your job duties, among other factors, in determining what constitutes satisfactory completion of the background check. All information obtained as a result of a background check will be used solely for MCD purposes.


When a background check is required, you must complete MCD’s authorization form. Failure to complete the form in a timely manner (3 days) may result in termination of MCD’s consideration for the position of employment or volunteer. Falsification or omission of information may result in denial of employment or discipline, up to and including termination.


All background check information will be kept confidential. The MCD complies with all applicable Federal, 

New Jersey, and local laws regarding background checks. It may be shared with someone, if applicable, i.e., in the case of a Campaign Manager, it may be shared with the Candidate.
