Ulster County Clerk Nina Postupack has announced that the Department of Motor Vehicles and the Recording & Filing counter will be closed to the public for health and safety reasons. This closure will begin immediately and is in effect until further notice. Drop-boxes will be available at the Ulster County Office Building, 244 Fair Street, Kingston, on the back side of the building, facing the parking lot.
The Department of Motor Vehicles will have a drop-box outside the back-door County Office Building for plate surrenders and registration renewals. License renewals will also be accepted in the drop-box, but a Vision Test Report must be attached. For other transactions or frequently asked questions, please visit the New York State DMV website at https://dmv.ny.gov/.
For land recordings and court filings, a drop-box will be located inside the back door of the County Office Building. County Clerk public records can be searched online at https://www.searchiqs.com/NYULS/Login.aspx.
When at all possible, residents are urged to complete their transactions online or mail routine transactions to the Ulster County Clerk’s Office, PO Box 1800, Kingston, NY 12402. Please note, there are two separate drop-boxes, DMV which is outside the back door and Recording/Filing which is inside the back door.
“During this difficult time, we are trying to make the best decisions we can to maintain the welfare of our employees and the public,” stated County Clerk Postupack. “We are taking the necessary steps to keep our services available in a socially responsible manner and encourage our residents to use online and mail options, as well as the drop-boxes.”
