County Clerk

The Tamarack Fire has decimated the area and forced the evacuation of our offices in Markleeville along with the eastern side of Alpine County. Our hearts go out to our community, family, friends and everyone affected by this tragic situation. 

We do not have an estimated date to reenter the Government Center. Many power lines need replaced before power is restored to Markleeville. The phone lines and the server lines were destroyed by the fire. This means that we currently do not have files readily available to us.

In the meantime, our email is functional and everyone is diligently working remotely to get our office up and running.

The county clerk is also the ex officio registrar of voters, ex officio clerk of the Board of Supervisors, commissioner of marriages, county parking agent and Local Agency Formation Commission executive officer.Please contact us by email.
