Oregon Law requires County Clerks to conduct elections for state, county, cities and special districts; maintain voter registrations and election statistics; provide a method for recording and preserving land records and liens; issue marriage licenses and record domestic partnerships; keep the Commissioner's Journal; maintain County public records and provide a clerk for the Board of Property Tax Appeals.

The County Clerk's records vault is usually closed to public use three weeks prior to an election and one to two weeks following an election. The vault is used for Vote-by-Mail assembly and storage. We are happy to allow public research, however, please check availability prior to making a long-distance trip to search our records.

The County Clerk is not a part of the Oregon State Circuit Court System. For court related services contact the Trial Court Office (541) 506-2700.
