Notary Publics: Notaries are available during regular business hours; call for shut-in service.

This service is by appointment only until further notice.

Voter Registration/Elections: Under the federal Help America Vote Act (HAVA), the county governments oversee all election responsibilities.

Voter Registration Forms may be downloaded in English or en Espanol.

Pistol Permits: Notary Services and Passport Photos (at a charge of $9.00 for 2 photos) are available for completing County Pistol Permit Applications. For more information on obtaining a Pistol Permit please visit the Rensselaer County Clerk's Page.
