County Clerks are managing a very fluid environment regarding public health and access to services for their citizens. Several counties are temporarily closing county wide or for limited services for public facing operations. This is in an effort to help reduce the rate of COVID-19 transmission.
We are urging Coloradans to use alternative services like online, phone, email or mail transactions and practice "social distancing". There may be staffing shortages in counties, so we ask that you are patient as counties prioritize and do their best respond to customers in a timely fashion.
"Many clerks already offered online services to assist their busy citizens, but this emergency demonstrates the wisdom of the implementation of those conveniences", said Tiffany Parker, CCCA President and La Plata County Clerk.
The governor has temporarily relaxed some state rules, including waiving late fees for Motor Vehicle registrations. Governor Polis also is opening up online drivers license renewal to Coloradans 65 and older.
Please check with your county clerk website to receive local updates to closures or service options.
