Information for County Vital Records Offices

The Office of Vital Records (OVR) oversees and supports the statewide system used to register, certify, and report vital events. We work with hospitals and funeral establishments to document births and deaths. OVR and county offices respond to customer requests and issue birth, death, and other vital record documents to eligible requesters.

Our work informs public health and improves lives. Together, we make a difference!
