Welcome to the Office of...
Timothy C. Idoni
Westchester County Clerk
The County Clerk is the oldest elected office in Westchester County, having been established in 1683. For over 300 years, the County Clerk has served the people of our county by maintaining and preserving the official documents and records of its rich history. As the 43rd Westchester County Clerk, it is my privilege and honor to carry on this tradition.
We encourage you to visit our office which is located at 110 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in White Plains where you can request forms or search for documents on our public viewing terminals. Our office is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:45 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding legal holidays. We also welcome your visit to our Mobile Office when it appears in your community. In the meantime, we hope that much of what you need can be found from the convenience of your own personal computer, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Please explore our website and familiarize yourself with the services our office provides. From safeguarding court records, to recording deeds and mortgages, to licensing plumbers and electricians, the work of our dedicated staff touches the lives of so many residents and business people. We look forward to continuing to serve you.

As New Passport Requirements Are Relaxed for Summer Travel, Westchester County Clerk Idoni Urges Residents to Apply Now: Between now and September 30, 2007, passport applicants who have not received their passport may enter and depart the United States by air for Canada, Mexico, Bermuda and the Caribbean with government issued photo identification and proof of application for a U.S. Passport in the form of an official Department of State receipt. Because this official receipt is not issued at the time a passport application is submitted to the Office of the Westchester County Clerk, but is instead available on the Department of State website approximately two to three weeks later, County Clerk Idoni is urging residents to apply now.
