How To Get Public Records Data

Public records are documents that have been recorded and filed by a city, state, county, or federal government agency. They include voter registration cards, magazine subscription forms, marriage certificates, and many other types of documents. (For more info, see "What Is a Public Record?”)

Thousands of clerk offices across the country collect and house these records. Even if you’re looking for data about just one individual, the records for that person are probably stored in multiple locations. Considering you often have to request public records in person, this makes it all-the-more difficult to find all the information you need on your own.
