“OUR GOAL IS TO CONTINUE TO STRIVE FOR EXCELLENT SERVICE TO THE RESIDENTS OF ORANGE COUNTY”
The Orange County Clerk’s Office is a window to local government, coming into contact with more people on a daily basis than perhaps any other branch of county government. Did you know that the clerk’s office is one of the oldest known official positions within local government? Its beginnings date back to Ancient Greece; the clerks would read aloud documents to the crowd at the opening of public meetings. When the colonists came to the United States, one of the first positions they established was a clerk. The colonists appointed a member of the colony in Plymouth to act as a “recorder” for the people.
Annie Rabbitt is currently the County Clerk for Orange County, being the 37th person elected to this position. The first person to hold this office was Derick Strom in 1702. The Office of County Clerk is an elected position that is voted on every four years. Annie is honored to be given the privilege to serve all of the residents of Orange County, whose population has grown to over 372,000 since it was established in 1683.
Annie is seeking to transition from a traditional office setting, to a more modernized advanced setting by having documents uploaded online, so that they are accessible to the public, from their home or office. So whether your reason to visit the clerk’s office is to get a copy of your deed, a passport, open a new business, or a DMV service: you can be sure that Annie Rabbitt and her helpful staff will be able to assist and answer any questions that you may have. We invite you to visit our current location.
