Functions of the Seward County Clerk's Office
The Seward County Clerk’s Office has a wide variety of duties. Marriage licenses are issued in our office as are tobacco licenses and liquor licenses. The Clerk’s Office also pays all the bills for the County. The County Clerk is the Secretary to the Board of Commissioners. The Board of Commissioners oversees the operations of the County and adopts the final budget.
Seward County’s population is 17,609 and because of this size, the County Clerk’s Office is also the Register of Deeds and Election Commissioner. The Register of Deeds Office contains all land records for Seward County. If you purchase a home or business, the deed and any related papers are filed in our office. The Election Commissioner handles all candidate filings and prepares and conducts all elections for Seward County. In counties with a larger population, these offices are separate from the County Clerk’s Office.
All Nebraska Birth and Death Records are filed at the Vital Records Office, 301 Centennial Mall South, Lincoln, NE 68508. You can contact them at 402-471-2871 or click here.
