Greetings from

Welcome to the County Clerk's web site! 

I am pleased to be able to offer this site to you as a convenient means of locating information on elections, voter registration, and obtaining birth and death records, marriage and civil union licenses and certificates.

It is the policy of our office to provide timely, accurate information to our constituents, and we sincerely hope this site will be a means to that end.

The County Clerk's office has four major functions:

1. Write and maintain County Board minutes and other county records.

2. Elections and voter registration.

3. Vital records, including birth, death, and marriage / civil union records.  Issue marriage licenses and civil union licenses.

4. Compute tax rates.  Handle redemption of delinquent taxes.

By law, the County Clerk also files the commissions for notaries public, and files assumed names for business,  campaign disclosure statements, and statements of economic interests.

The County Clerk's office has on file birth certificates dating from 1858 and death certificates from 1877. The clerk's office also has issued marriage licenses since the founding of the county in 1826.

The County Clerk also computes the tax rates of over 100 units of local government based on the amount of money requested by each government and the amount of the assessed value within the district. Tax rates are set by dividing the levy (taxes requested by the district) by the assessed valuation. (Rate = levy/assessed value). From these rates individual tax bills are prepared by the County Collector.

Thank you for visiting our site.  You are always welcome here or in our office.  We look forward to serving you.
