Number of E-recording Enabled Jurisdictions Passes 2,000

August 20, 2019

The number of jurisdictions that accept electronically recorded documents now stands at 2,007 as of July 31, according to the Property Records Industry Association (PRIA).

This represents over 55 percent of the country’s 3,600 recording jurisdictions in the United States. According to PRIA, more than 86 percent of the U.S. population live in an e-recording jurisdiction.

Recently, Westerly County, R.I., became the first county in that state to enable electronic recording. That leaves only Kentucky and Vermont without jurisdictions accepting electronic recordings, PRIA reported.
