While the County Clerk serves as the clerk of the Supreme and County Courts and is the official recorder of deeds and land records, the County Clerk offers numerous additional services.  Read below to learn about additional services of our the County Clerk's Office, and click the links for additional information about each of the services.

  • Westchester County IDs
    Westchester residents in need of a government issued ID may apply in person for a Westchester County ID.
  • Veterans Discharge Papers
    Veterans are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to file a copy of their military discharge papers with the County Clerk’s office. This important document will be permanently saved and should the veteran ever misplace or damage the document, an image can be provided, free of charge, by the Clerk.
  • Senior Citizens
    Each fall the Westchester County Clerk visits senior centers throughout the County to speak with seniors about issues of concern to them and to alert them about various scams, such as the deed scam.
  • Pistol Licensing
    In order to have or carry a pistol in New York State, you must first obtain a pistol license. In Westchester County, licensing officers are judges or justices of the Supreme or County Court (Penal Law §265.00[10]).  The County Clerk issues Pistol Licenses and maintains the license files, upon the granting of a license by a judge.
  • Naturalization Ceremonies
    Westchester County Clerk Timothy C. Idoni has proudly administered the Oath of Citizenship to new citizens twice a month at naturalization ceremonies at the Richard J. Daronco Courthouse in White Plains.  These ceremonies were put on hold in January of 2020 by the US State Department, but we hope to hold local naturalization ceremonies again in the near future.
  • Community Outreach
    Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the County Clerk’s mobile office visits had been on hold. However, with the increased availability of vaccines and lessening of COVID restrictions, we are back out in the communities.
  • ACH Direct Accounts
    Individuals or organizations who frequently submit documents may establish an ACH Direct Account with the County Clerk to ensure an easy, quick and accurate payment of their transactions.
  • Birth, Marriage and Death
    The Office of the Westchester County Clerk does not issue or record birth, marriage or death certificates.  However, you can visit our Birth, Marriage and Death page for information on obtaining these documents from the appropriate agencies.
  • Hunting and Fishing
    The Westchester County Clerk's office is no longer issuing hunting and fishing licenses. To find out where you can purchase a hunting or fishing license within New York State and Westchester, go to New York State Department of Environmental Conservation  and the online and phone sporting licenses issuing system.
  • FOIL Request
    This office has made an effort to make many of the public land and legal documents available directly to the public through our Westchester Records Online search tool without the need to submit a request and wait for a response.  Public records maintained by this office that are not available in WRO may be requested pursuant to the NYS Freedom Of Information Law (FOIL).
