A Message from the County Clerk



We complete many transactions for you at the Chemung County Clerk's Office and at the Department of Motor Vehicles (License Bureau). The County Clerk performs duties prescribed by Law and directed by the Chemung County Legislature. The Chemung County Clerk is an agent to the New York State Commissioner of Motor Vehicles and is responsible for all the functions that are completed at the Chemung County License Bureau as directed by New York State Law and procedure. Both departments collect revenue for the County of Chemung and the State of New York that help offset the taxes collected from the taxpayer. 

Again please come into our offices so we can continue to keep our tax dollars here in Chemung County.  When you see a return address for renewals of your driver's license or your vehicle's registration, please send to the Chemung County License Bureau, PO Box 588, Elmira, NY  14902.  We have a drop box located at the front of the Human Resource Building (License Bureau), or simply drop it off at the Information Booth in the License Bureau. We will have your renewal back to you in three (3) business days.
