Passport Services at the Chancery Clerk's Office

Did you know you can obtain your Passport through the Rankin County Chancery Clerk's office?  You don't have to deal with Uncle Sam and the understaffed post office.  Instead, you can use the services of your local Chancery Clerk (both Madison and Rankin).  The ladies at the Chancery Clerk's office (land records), 211 East Government Street, Brandon, MS 39042), are knowledgeable, friendly, and always eager to help.  You walk in, get your Passport, and walk out.  No waiting.  One stop shop, complete with photo services. 

Here is the Rankin County Chancery Clerk's Passport page.
Here is the Passport application page (to make it even faster).
Here is a table of Passport fees.
Here is a link for a $5 coupon at the Rankin County Chancery Clerk's Office.
