Can someone other than the actual participants pick up a certified copy of a vital record?

The delegation of authority for birth/death and marriage/civil union is used when someone is giving TEMPORARY POA for someone to pick up vital records for them.  If someone other than the actual participants are picking up a certified copy of a vital record, they must fill out the proper delegation form.  Contact the call center at 586-0311 and a representative can mail the form which must be signed and dated in the presence of a Notary Public or be accompanied by a photocopy of the authorizing person's valid photo identification.  Authorized individual must also provide valid identification.
