Instant Access to Utah State, County and Municipal Records
Utah Public Records
The Utah State Records website provides every person with the right to gather, obtain, and examine public records. This ensures that Utah residents have access to this information in accordance with the Utah Government Records Access Act. This act states that all government information and records are available to the public.
The goal of this website is to ensure all members of the general public have the right to access Utah state public records. This can be done without requiring a reason for accessing such information, or providing personal information, unless the requested record is confidential by law, either constitutional, statutory or by court decision.
Utah State Records contains the information about the following subjects: criminal records, court records, vital records and state background checks; including over 25 million transparent public records.
The state of Utah started to create public records in the year 1892, and these records usually cover information from all 29 counties in the state. For 30 years, digitization of public records has become the standard. This means records are increasingly available online through both governmental and third party outlets. This allows Utah citizens to abide by the commitment of the United States of America to remain a fair and just society for all.
