San Diego, CA–The San Diego County Recorder will expand its office hours on Saturday with a “no appointment necessary” walk-in day to meet pent-up pandemic period demand for birth, death, and marriage certificates.
Currently, the office requires appointments during the week, but the August 14 event will not require them.. Walk-in services are only offered at the Recorder’s Chula Vista, San Marcos, and Santee locations.
San Diego County Recorder Ernie Dronenburg is offering the additional services to meet the unusually high demand from the back-to-school season (birth certificates are required to register) and for folks getting back to work. Customers can walk in to select locations on “Vital Records Day” between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. to receive a copy of their birth, death, and marriage certificates.
San Diego County Recorder Ernie Dronenburg commented,
“We are servicing a pent-up demand for vital records, which include birth, death, and marriage certificates from the pandemic period, for parents preparing for the new school year and folks getting back to work,” Dronenburg said. “Customer service is my number one priority, and this is part of our effort to always put customers first.”
