The State of Indiana has 92 counties, each served by the Clerk of the Circuit Court who, as an officer of the court, manages court information and is the court's financial officer.

CLERKS OF THE CIRCUIT COURT

Each county is served by the Clerk of the Circuit Court. While some jurisdictions have one Circuit Court, most counties have multiple courts.

The Clerk is an elected official who performs as an officer of the court, the manager of court information, and the chief financial officer for all revenues collected on behalf of the court.

In Indiana, the Clerk is also the official who oversees and conducts all elections, as a member of the Election Board. The Clerk is responsible to administer and certify results for all federal, state, county, township, municipal, special, and school board elections.

Clerks who serve as members of the Legislative Committee for the Association of the Clerks of Circuit Courts of Indiana actively participate in the legislative process by drafting, promoting and testifying for bills which assist in improving the justice system in Indiana.

Professional membership opportunities for Clerks may include participation in the Association of Clerks of Circuit Courts of Indiana, the Association of Indiana Counties (AIC), the National Association of Court Management, (NACM), the International Association of Clerks, Recorders, Election Officials and Treasurers (IACREOT), and the National Association of County Officials (NACO).

Members of the Association of the Clerks of Circuit Courts of Indiana are appointed to serve on the Indiana Voting Systems Advisory Committee, the Indiana State Supreme Court Records Management Committee, and the Commission on Courts; they also serve on the local Commission on Public Records.
