Disclaimer: A person requesting public records need not identify themselves or the reason for which they seek the records. Providing such information to the Clerk's Office is entirely voluntary, although it can often clarify and expedite the release of information.  Public records requests can be made in person, over the telephone or online.  Records will be released in accordance with the provisions of the Ohio Public Records Act, and may be subject to legal review prior to release.

Main Street, Lancaster, Ohio 43130) or in person at the Clerk of Courts Records Division at 224 E. Main Street, 4th Floor, Lancaster, Ohio 43130.
