The Buncombe County Register of Deeds office, in an effort to reduce wait time for couples getting married, has begun an Online Marriage Application. This has reduced the amount of time couples have to spend in the Register of Deeds office to receive their marriage license from thirty minutes to five minutes. The Online Marriage Application can be accessed, completed and submitted from home at http://registerofdeeds.buncombecounty.org/marriageapplication/.
Buncombe County’s public relations team recently created a “GROWBC” campaign that focuses on the county’s core values and ways to GrowBC greener, healthier, kinder, safer, smarter TOGETHER. The Online Marriage Application is a clear step towards growing Buncombe County in a smarter, more efficient direction.
The online application cuts out hours of data entry daily for county staff while reducing the amount of time a couple needs to spend at the Register of Deeds office. This Online Marriage Application is part of a larger effort to bring new technology into the Register of Deeds office.
