Dear Customers of the Yolo County Clerk-Recorder:

On April 30, 2020, Governor Gavin Newsom issued an executive order on marriages. This order allows counties to provide marriage license services using videoconferencing technologies. Our office is working diligently to execute this executive order expeditiously. In the meantime, we encourage all Yolo County residents interested in receiving a marriage license to complete our online marriage license application. Once all our plans are in place, staff will begin processing marriage applications on a first come first serve basis.

We look forward to providing this new service model to our residents as soon as possible.

Jesse Salinas, Yolo County Assessor/Clerk-Recorder/Registrar of Voters
