The County Recorders office is one of the offices formally organized by the Constitutional Convention of 1889, and in some counties existed as part of the Territorial Offices.  County Recorder officers are elected to four-year terms which begin January 1.
The information filed and recorded in the recorders office is used by the auditor, treasurer, commissioners and other county officials, along with the general public and business entities. The real estate record is the basis for the auditor's assessment rolls and the tax collection process of the treasurer.
If you will be in the Recorders Office for research, we ask that you use hand sanitizer.  Thank you
