Oath of Office

 

  • Public Officers Law Section 10 also requires every public officer to take and file the oath required by law before he or she performs any official duties.  This section also governs the procedures for administering oaths of office and specifies the public office in which such oaths must be filed.  

 

  • A public officer, who is a "state officer," as defined in Public Officers Law Section 2, must file his or her oath with the New York Secretary of State.  State officers include the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, State Comptroller, members of the Legislature, justices of the Supreme Court, Regents of the University, and officers appointed by a State officer or the Legislature.

 

  • A public officer, who is a "local officer," as defined in Public Officers Law Section 2, must file his or her oath in the office specified by Public Officers Law Section 10. 

 

  • An oath of office for an elective office must be taken and filed before or within thirty days after the commencement of the term of office.  An oath of office for an appointive office must be taken and filed within thirty days after notice of his or her appointment or within thirty days after the commencement of his or her term of office.  Public Officers Law Section 30 also provides special provisions for oaths of public officers who are on active duty in the armed forces at the time of his or her election or appointment.

 

  • Public Officers Law Section 30 provides that the office of a public officer becomes vacant when the public officer refuses or neglects to take and file his or her oath of office within the time required by law.  Therefore, it is of particular importance that public officers take and file their oath of office within the time permitted by law.

The Constitution of the United States is the supreme law of the United States of America.  In general, the first ten amendments of the Constitution, known collectively as the Bill of Rights, offer specific protections of individual liberty and justice and place restrictions on the powers of government.

When NYS Officials are elected into Office, Members of the State Legislature and all public officers, executive and judicial, are required to take and sign an Oath of Office upholding and affirming that they will abide by the Constitution, provided by Article XIII(8), Section 1 of the New York State Constitution before they commence the duties of their office.
