Following the issuance of Yolo County's latest Health Order on May 28, 2020, the office of the Clerk-Recorder will re-open to the public on Monday June 1, 2020. The office will be open for normal business hours (8:00am - 4:00pm) Monday-Friday.

In accordance with the Health Order, the Clerk-Recorder will be implementing and monitoring the "Personal Health & Safety Guidance" best practices included in the order. The cornerstones of this will be: wearing of face masks, practicing of social distance, and adherence to good hygiene.

All customers looking to transact business with the Clerk-Recorder are expected to present themselves wearing face masks as required in the Health Order and any other Personal Protective Equipment the customer feels is appropriate.

In the effort to promote and maintain effective social distancing, the Clerk-Recorder will be limiting the number of customer transactions occurring in the office at one time. Customers are asked to wait patiently in-line at predesignated locations and staff will assist them as quickly as possible. To shorten transactions and wait times, customers are encouraged to complete their applications online. 


The Clerk-Recorder will return to offering two (2) Marriage Ceremonies a day Monday-Friday. Keeping in-line with our previous policy, Marriage Licenses and Ceremonies will only be issued and performed for couple where at least one member is a Yolo County resident. Furthermore due to the limits on spacing and in order to maintain proper social distancing, ALL Marriage Ceremonies will be limited to the couple and one (1) witness. We thank you in advance for this consideration.

The Clerk-Recorder looks forward to serving the public again in this increased capacity. Please call 530-666-8130 if you have any questions.

Dear Customers of the Yolo County Clerk-Recorder:

On April 30, 2020, Governor Gavin Newsom issued an executive order on marriages.  This order allows counties to provide marriage license services using videoconferencing technologies.  Our office is working diligently to execute this executive order expeditiously.  In the meantime, we encourage all Yolo County residents interested in receiving a marriage license to complete our online marriage license application.  Once all our plans are in place, staff will begin processing marriage applications on a first come first serve basis.  

We look forward to providing this new service model to our residents as soon as possible.


Jesse Salinas, Yolo County Assessor/Clerk-Recorder/Registrar of Voters
