Customer Alert: Update as of December 30, 2020

As a result of widespread transmission of COVID-19 and the direction of the California Department of Public Health, the Secretary of State continues to make every attempt to ensure the safety of our customers and employees while still offering essential services to the public.

With these goals in mind, both our Sacramento and Los Angeles offices are closed to the public with drop box(es) in both lobbies to drop documents off for processing. All documents are deemed submitted at 5:00 p.m. on the date dropped off and being returned by mail. Submissions must include checks or money orders for the processing fees. Special handling fees are waived.

For fastest service, we encourage you to go online when possible at bizfile.sos.ca.gov. Online submissions will have priority over drop-off and mail submissions. If an online service in not available, you may include a prepaid airway bill and return envelope that we will use to return your documents.

The following services are suspended, until further notice:

  • Expedite and preclearance services.
  • Sacramento lobby pick-up thus special handling fees are waived.
  • 72-Hour Rule.

For faster service, all documents normally submitted to the Los Angeles office should be mailed to the Sacramento office:
