Last updated 3/18/2020 at 4:26pm

The El Paso County Clerk and Recorder’s Office is announcing temporary closures of all branch locations and suspension of Motor Vehicle, Driver’s License and Elections public facing services. Our Recording Department at Citizens Service Center will offer very limited services. Marriage licenses can be obtained via appointment to couples only, family and friends will be prohibited. Other recording services are available; however, it is strongly advised citizens mail documents that need to be recorded or deposit them into the external drop box on the building’s east side. Access to buildings and in-person services will be reduced beginning March 18, to help decrease the rate of COVID-19 transmission.
