 Elected Role Descriptions


The Auditor General is the chief fiscal watchdog of the commonwealth. This person is responsible for using annual audits to ensure that all government money is spent legally and properly.

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.

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.

Recorder of Deeds:

The Recorder of Deeds is a government office tasked with maintaining public records and documents, specifically ones relating to real estate deals including ownership rights, planning documents, mortgages and historical transactions.

Register of Wills:

The principal duties of the Recorder of Wills include probating wills and filing all documents necessary to complete the administration of an estate. If a person dies without a will, the register, upon petition, will appoint an administrator of the estate.


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.


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.
