Welcome to the Kalamazoo County Clerk/Register of Deeds Office. The County Clerk & Register of Deeds is elected for a four-year term, and is responsible for keeping vital records (birth, death, marriage, business names, military discharges, notary public commissions and concealed weapons permits); land records (deeds, mortgages, liens, and many others) for Kalamazoo County, some of which date back to 1831.

In addition, the Clerk serves as the chief election official in the County. As such, the Clerk administers all election functions required by law.
