The Clerk of the Circuit Court is an elected position authorized by Article 6, Section 2 of the Indiana Constitution and serves a four (4) year term.  The Clerk has a wide range of duties covering areas including the collection of court payments and record keeping, voter registration, child support payments, and the issuance of various licenses and certificates.  Detailed duties for the Clerk are found in IC 33-32-2, General Powers and Duties; IC 33-32-3, Record Keeping Duties; IC 3-7-27 Voter Registration; IC 33-32-4, Child Support Payments; and IC 33-32-5, Marriage Licenses and Distress Sales.

The Voter Registration office reports directly to the Clerk of Circuit Court.  The duties and responsibilities of this department are defined in IC 3-7-27.  A statewide voter registration system (SVRS) was implemented in 2006 to maintain a shared and consistent electronic database across all 92 counties.  This system is linked to the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles and the Social Security Administration databases and also exchanges data with the Indiana Department of Corrections to assist this office in maintaining accurate voter registration information.
