    Can't believe I'm saying this about a government registry but this place is great. Super organized, relatively fast, and good service.

    Bring a book. A big one. With which to attempt knocking yourself out during the hour-long wait you will enjoy.

    Unfortunately, the self-service kiosks are gone. Not sure when they were removed, but be prepared to wait in line.

    Self-serve Kiosk has been down for the past month. If you are not here before noon, forget it.

    If you're here by 7:45 am, it will literally take you 20-25 minutes to get your work done. Smooth sailing. Read more

    Go online to book an appointment if you can. This works for health card renewals and photos. It saves tons of time!
