Colorado Public Records: How to Order Public Records in CO

In 2003, Vital Records Section of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, created and began operating a website for the purpose of allowing the public to request information on public records.

You must have a passport, driver’s license or similar document verifying who you are with a certified signature in order to be given the public records.

Be advised that as of July 2008, various fees for public records will be going up. If you wish to request any public records, be sure to check with the main office before sending in a request with payment.
