Office of the County Clerk

Welcome to the online Office of the Suffolk County Clerk. From the Hamptons in the east to the high-tech industries in the west, Suffolk County is the crown jewel of New York State.

As County Clerk I am committed to reinventing how local government serves its constituents. Several years ago, my office became one of the first County Clerk's Offices in the nation to establish a presence on the World Wide Web. This site is an outgrowth of our original effort and will continue to grow.
