CLERK SERVICES DIVISION

Responsibilities include issuing marriage licenses, filing fictitious business names, processing passport applications, administering notary oaths, appointing deputy commissioners for a day, registering process servers and legal document assistants, and maintaining oaths for County employees. The Division also offers wedding ceremonies daily. The department continues to offer Saturday office hours five or more times per year in response to the need for weekend passport hours for residents, especially those with families. The Division continues to provide services in Watsonville one day per month.

ELECTIONS DIVISION

Responsibilities include conducting elections for all federal, State, County, school district, special district and city offices, and all measures and propositions at the State or local level. Elections staff manages voter registration, coordinates voter outreach, manages candidate and elected officials’ filings, recruits and trains poll workers, establishes polling places, and implements all new State and federal election laws. State reimbursement for County costs incurred as a result of a 2010 special vacancy election remains unpaid, and the suspension of SB 90 program payments that impact elections is anticipated to continue. In 2019-20, the Elections Division will increase the number of Same Day Voter Registration Centers and upgrade the existing voting equipment, which was purchased in 2006.
