BRADENTON, Fla. — The Manatee County Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller has partnered with TrieData to offer the ability to electronically certify official records online.
Called Clerk E-Certify, this new service uses advanced encryption features to produce secure, tamper-proof electronically certified copies of official records in minutes.
Traditionally, in order to obtain a certified copy of an official record, a phone call or trip was required to the Clerk’s office to have a paper copy certified, stamped and delivered. The public can now access this new online service by visiting the official records search page at https://records.manateeclerk.com/OfficialRecords/Search. To search, simply locate the official record, and once the image of the document appears, click on purchase certified copy from E-Certify to begin the process.
