 Elected Role Descriptions

Clerk of Courts:

The county clerk is responsible for filing vital records including documents related to a specific county's population, including birth, death and marriage certificates. Sometimes the Clerk of Courts is also responsible for preparing ballots, maintaining voting machines and training poll workers.

Coroner:

A coroner is an official usually at the county level who is responsible for the investigation of deaths occurring within their specific jurisdiction. Specifically, coroners are responsible for conducting investigations to determine cause and mode of death.

Lieutenant Governor:

In most cases, the lieutenant governor is the highest officer of state after the governor, standing in for that officer when they are absent from the state or temporarily incapacitated. In the event a governor dies, resigns or is removed from office, the lieutenant governor typically becomes governor.

Sheriff:

A sheriff is responsible for all law enforcement at a county level, ensuring that all local, state, and federal laws are followed. He or she performs a role similar to that of a police chief of a municipal department, managing the department in charge of protecting people and property and maintaining civil order.

Treasurer:

Typically, the Treasurer's duties include financial management and oversight of the particular department of which he or she manages. A Treasurer may also manage or oversee the financial affairs of the organization, often including tasks as selecting a bank, reconciling bank statements, and managing cash flow.
