Request Public Records

The Colorado Open Records Act is a series of laws that ensures public access to government records. You can request any documents, recordings, or other data created and maintained by Jefferson County, with some exceptions for legal or privacy purposes.

When should I submit a CORA request?

CORA requests are to get access to information that is not already publicly available. If you are in search of information such as marriage records, real estate transactions, past election results, or elections voting data, please use the Find Public Records tab below.

What kinds of CORA requests can the Jeffco Clerk & Recorder help with?

Jeffco's Clerk & Recorder office can ONLY fulfill CORA requests related to areas that fall within the Clerk & Recorder's purview, such as elections, motor vehicle, and recording. We cannot fulfill requests related to:

  • Building code, permit, or safety records
  • Divorce or other court records
  • Taxes, assessments, fines, or fees associated with properties

For those requests, please visit the county's general Public Records request page for assistance locating the information you need.

How do I submit a CORA request to the Jeffco Clerk & Recorder?

All CORA requests must be submitted in writing. Use the request form for the quickest response. Most requests will be responded to within three business days, although there are exceptions for larger requests and those made near election day. There may be a cost associated with the request depending on the time required to compile the requested documents.
