Birth and Death Certificates

For Birth records only, checks are accepted with a 3-week holding period. Birth Certificates are made daily from 8-11am and 1-4pm. Death certificates are made daily. If you requested the Birth certificate to be mailed, it will be put in the mail the following day. If you do not receive the Certificate within a week, please call 509-524-2650. There might be a problem in issuing the Certificate. If you requested to pick up the Certificate at this office, you will need to have either the receipt with you when picking it up or Picture ID – a certificate in this situation will only be given to the person who ordered it.
