City Clerk’s Office Announces Voter Guidelines for Upcoming Municipal
The City Clerk’s office today announced to Portland voters the guidelines for the upcoming municipal elections, which includes new city districts and polling locations for some residents.
Due to changes in federal regulations, the U.S. Department of State Passport Services has stopped allowing facilities, such as the City Clerk’s Office to process passports. The regulation prohibits offices that can print, create or amend birth certificates from processing passports due to a concern of falsifying birth certificates. Unless the two functions are physically separate we cannot be an acceptance agent.
Save the City’s Records
If someone wants a copy of a birth certificate, he/she goes to the Municipal Clerk’s office. The same goes for obtaining a marriage license. We do not just have the records of Portland residents; if the event occurred in the City of Portland, we have a copy.
Job Openings in the City Clerk's Office
We have ongoing openings to work at the polls. There are two positions at the polls that we are trying to fill, Deputy Registrar and Election Clerk.
Office Hours are:
9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The City Clerk’s office is located in Room 203 of City Hall and is responsible for
conducting all elections, voter registration, maintaining all City records including
Council proceedings and serves as custodian of city ordinances, and
other public documents. The office issues various state and local licenses and
permits which include business licenses,
licenses, domestic partnership registrations, birth,
and Street Artists Rules and Regulation.
