CLERK AND RECORDER ESSENTIAL SERVICES
The Gilpin County Clerk & Recorders office is operating but at a limited capacity at this time during the county closure.
We are preparing for the June 30, 2020 Primary Election according to State election rules. There is no disruption to Voter Registration for Gilpin County residents and you can create or change your registration at GoVoteColorado.gov.
Electronically submitted documents are being recorded. Other documents needing to be recorded can be mailed or dropped off in the 24/7 ballot drop off box in front of the Courthouse. Originals will be returned by USPS. Please email for fees or requests for records. We are working from home and have limited access to our voicemail.
Marriage licenses can now be issued without both parties present (Executive Order D 2020 014) for 30 days from March 26, 2020. Complete the marriage license application and mail it or drop it in the drop box with a check for $30 made out to Gilpin County Clerk & Recorder. Include clear copies of your ID. Please complete the application in its entirety. We will call you to confirm the information and then mail the license to you.
An alternative to the marriage license is to file a Common Law Affidavit. You can mail it back or drop it in the drop box with a check for $13 made out to Gilpin County Clerk & Recorder and we will record it.
Both forms can be found at Gilpincounty.org on the Clerk and Recorder page under Marriage/Civil Unions.
The Motor Vehicles Dept will process online and mail renewals unless the Governor closes the DMV completely (as of March 18 only state DMV offices are closed). We have opened our 24/7 ballot drop box in front of the Courthouse to accept your paid motor vehicle paperwork, and will return it via USPS. Many vehicle transactions can be conducted online at mydmv.colorado.gov, including renewing driver’s licenses for those under 21 and over 65, and new registrations. Late fees incurred during the closure are being waived and law enforcement is aware of the situation.
Questions can be directed to ClerkandRecorder@gilpincounty.org. Please note we are working mostly from home and have limited access to our voicemail and email is the best way to reach out. Thank you for your patience and stay well!
