Vital Statistics Services staff help the public file and access vital records. Vital records include birth, death, fetal death, marriage, divorce and other related data. Vital events are filed with the registrar in the county of occurrence and then are recorded with the state.
Vital Statistics Services is open Monday through Friday except on official state holidays. Please note that records are processed between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Our office is at 2300 Capitol Ave in Cheyenne on the first floor of the Hathaway Building, Room 172. The building is located 100 yards south of the Wyoming State Capitol and is directly across the street from the Wyoming Supreme Court Building. Enter the building at the main entrance (look for the statue of former Wyoming Governor Stan Hathaway) and after a few steps turn right to find the office entrance.
The office of Vital Statistics Services does not recommend the use of commercial vendors when ordering certified copies of vital records.
