Is the Secretary of State open for business?
Yes. While Sacramento public counter services are currently suspended, our office remains operational and continues to provide mission critical functions and services. We will continue to have limited staff in the office at any given time with other staff working remotely to maintain essential operations. Customers with questions are encouraged to utilize the many resources available on our website, including our bizfile Online portal at bizfileOnline.sos.ca.gov; ask Eureka - our award winning online chatbot whom also speaks Spanish, or submit your inquiries via email whenever possible. Telephone wait times are longer than usual while we operate with limited employees in the office to preserve the health and safety of our customers and staff.
