Land Records will be open by appointment only for limited services.  Our Driver's License service will begin to take appointments for address and name changes or expired Driver's License only.  We will also schedule appointments for marriage license applicants.  Please call to schedule your appointment.  We hope to offer all of our services in the near future.  Thank you.

Birth Certificates can be obtained on the same day if you are applying in person.  Valid identification and tangible interest in the record are required for all requests, along with a completed Birth Certificate Application.

Tangible interest is determined by the Minnesota Department of Health.  Please click on the following link for Tangible Interest Information, which will bring up a detailed chart from the Minnesota Department of Health. 

If you are mailing your request for a Birth Certificate, your signature on the Birth Certificate Application must be witnessed by a Notary Public.  Please mail to:

Dodge County Recorder
721 Main Street North
Mantorville, MN 55955
