Welcome to the Thurston County Clerk's Office


Effective June 1, 2020

In order to ensure proper social distancing with limited lobby space, the Clerk’s Office lobby will be available only by appointment.  Most services will need to continue to be processed by mail, drop-box (located in front of building), e-filing or electronic online payment.  Only one person will be allowed at the Clerk’s lobby counter and at the public viewing terminal at a time. The following will be in effect to avoid long wait times and overcrowding in the buildings.  If you require special assistance or accommodations, please contact our Main Office for Criminal and Civil case types at 360-786-5430 or our Family and Juvenile Office for all other case types at 360-709-3260.
