County Clerk


The Broome County Clerk’s Office is open to the public.

Protective face masks will be required and for your safety, no more than 10 customers will be permitted in the office at once.

Law firms and title search companies that normally deliver their folders to us for processing are encouraged to drop them off in the incoming and outgoing drop boxes located outside our glass doors on the 3rd floor.

We look forward to assisting you!

Welcome to the Broome County Clerk's Office! The County Clerk is the Records Management Officer for all the records in Broome County and is an agent to the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles. The office is broken into three divisions:

1. County Clerk's Office: The Broome County Clerk’s Office oversees the processing, filing, scanning and storing of thousands of vital property, business and court documents every year. We oversee records dating back to 1806 including deeds, mortgages, judgments, liens, maps, civil and criminal actions. Our staff assists thousands of people each year with their filing and searching of these public documents.

Many of these documents are now available online at www.gobcclerk.com. Here you can find land records dating back to 1946 and court documents going back to 1986.

2. The Department of Motor Vehicles:  The DMV provides original and renewal vehicle registrations, driver’s licenses and learner permits. The DMV is responsible for issuing conditional and restricted license and non-driver identification cards in accordance to New York State Federal Rules and Regulations.

New York State is now requiring all county-operated DMV offices to assist customers by appointment only.

Please go to https://broomecountyclerk.setmore.com to book your appointment at our Binghamton or Endicott DMV offices. You can now book appointments at our mobile DMV offices in Whitney Point, Conklin and Windsor too!  We are currently unable to reopen our mobile office in Harpursville because it operates inside the senior center, which is currently closed.   

Surrendering License Plates:  If you are only turning in your license plates, you can either put them in any of our secure DMV drop boxes or you can visit any of our physical offices without an appointment.  Just leave them with the DMV clerk who's manning the front door.  Please don't forget the $1 plate surrender processing fee.  Cash is fine.  Your FS-6T receipt will be mailed to you.

When you process your transactions in our local DMV offices, Broome County retains 12.7% of the transaction revenue; when you mail your renewals to Albany or renew online, that money goes straight into Albany's bloated General Fund, over which there's no accountability or local control!

3. Records Management: The Records Management division is responsible for storing and maintaining County Records as well as overseeing the proper retention and destruction based on New York State Guidelines.
