What is the role of the Board of Chosen Freeholders?
County government serves as the middle layer of government between the federal and state governments and the municipalities. Passaic County is governed by a seven-member board of chosen freeholders. Each freeholder is elected at large for a three-year term.

The board is headed by a Freeholder-Director, who is selected for a one-year term at the board's annual reorganization meeting at the first meeting of the year in January. Under Passaic County's commission form of government, freeholders discharge both executive and legislative responsibilities. Find out more on the Role of the Freeholders page.
