Lincoln County Clerk & Recorder
The Clerk & Recorder’s Office is the “record keeper” for the county, both historic and current. The mission of the Clerk and Recorder's Office is to preserve and provide for the public a true account of real property, commissioner meeting minutes, birth and death records, and other official county records and to do so with commitment, courtesy and excellence.
The philosophy of the Lincoln County Election Department is to provide exemplary customer service to the electors of Lincoln County, the public and all local, state and federal entities. Our goal is to conduct fair, honest and transparent elections with the highest degree of integrity, professionalism and courtesy.
The election department maintains voter records, prepares for and conducts primary, general and other county elections. Preparations include certifying the local ballot, preparing ballot layouts, assembling and distributing supplies and training election judges. Visit the Elections Page Here.
Birth & Death Records
Lincoln County is online with the Office of Vital Statistics in Helena. Therefore, this office can access and issue birth and death certificates for all Montana counties currently on record. Visit the Birth & Death Certificates Page Here.
The Clerk & Recorder's Office is always looking for ways to further assist, educate and serve the public. MontGuides are a self-learning resource from MSU Extension. They cover a wide variety of topics from agriculture, land transfers to estate planning, and so much more. MontGuides are useful references to give information, or instructions to the public. MontGuides are free, and downloadable.
