Prowers County Clerk’s Office Access by Appointment Only

Prowers County Courthouse

As of November 13, 2020, Prowers County moved to a Level Orange/High Risk of the SAFER AT HOME Directive, therefore the Prowers County Clerk and Recorder’s Office will be restricting public access to our office and will be moving to appointment only beginning Monday, November 16, 2020 due to the rapid increase of COVID cases in our area until further notice. We are limiting the number of in-person transactions for processing new titles, marriage license issuance, and recording documents in the real estate recording records. You can call 719-336-8011 to make an appointment.

We ask that customers renew their vehicle license plates online at, or send their renewal notice and payment in the mail, or use the ballot drop box located in the parking lot east of the county courthouse building. That box is under surveillance and will be open 24 hours per day including weekends and holidays. It is a felony to break open or tamper with the box.

While we are under limited public access, staff will be here to assist customers by answering phones, faxes, e-mails, and process whatever comes in through the mail. We will be working regular business hours from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
