Jeff Thigpen for Guilford County Register of Deeds
It’s been an honor to serve the citizens of Guilford County. We've done great things in my time in office and I'd like to continue!
The Guilford County Register of Deeds office is one of the premier offices in North Carolina. I’ve sought to be a leader that serves fundamental values such as basic fairness, integrity, and service.
I see my office as a foundation to democracy, transparency and fair dealing not just a cog in the bureaucracy. We seek to be innovative and responsive to our customers. For example, over 70% of land records are eRecorded. Guilford County Thank a Vet is partnering with 320 businesses to provide discounts on good and services for over 2500 veterans and has received an Excellence in Innovation Award from the Local Government Federal Credit Union and North Carolina Association for County Commissioners. As the first Thank a Vet, there are programs in 32 counties. Guilford County Passport Services is the only "Walk-In" Passport Application Office in the county. This new service has generated over $530,000 from processing over 13,000 applications. Our Slave Deeds project and exhibit has many community partners and has expanded in North Carolina. As you can see, we do great work for Guilford County citizens.
We recently received the Greensboro Regional Realtors Association "Public Service" Award in recognition of and appreciation for Outstanding and Distinguished Service.
I’m asking you to support my re-election as your Guilford County Register of Deeds.
Thank you for your support!
Jeff L. Thigpen
