Clerk of the Courts
The Clerk of the Circuit and Superior Courts is a county-elected official and serves as an officer of the court and manager of court information. The Office of Clerk is established by the Indiana Constitution.

The Clerk administers the official court records for all trial court cases, prepares the permanent historical record of the courts, and processes and issues various documents for court cases. The Clerk collects filing fees, court costs, judgments in civil and infraction cases, fines for courts, and child support totaling approximately $11 million in financial transactions annually.

As a member of the Election Board, the Clerk oversees, conducts and certifies the results for all federal, state, county, municipal, township and special elections.
