Auditor’s office expands electronic recording

PORT ORCHARD — Documents electronically recorded in Kitsap County are, in most cases, now viewable online, thanks to changes to the county’s online document recording program.

The program can be accessed at

The county’s auditor’s office was one of the first to introduce eRecording technology with its debut in July 2009. The department is expanding on the industry standard for delivering public documents for recording in electronic format by working with some of the most notable companies in the industry, the county’s auditor, Delores Gilmore, said.

“Government and private sector synergy make eRecording technology available to the people of Kitsap County,” Gilmore said.

“The internet can be used to prepare documents for scanning and uploading while drastically reducing the time it takes to record documents with the county.”

The auditor is working with Corporation Service Co., eRecording Partners Network, Indecomm Global Services and Simplifile, which is the sole company that can eRecord documents requiring a treasurer excise tax stamp.

The auditor’s office and its four divisions — Elections, Finance, Recording and Licensing — are the hub for citizens with services related to voting and marriage licensing. The office is at the Kitsap County Administration Building, 619 Division St., Port Orchard.
