Clerk of Courts

The State of Indiana has ninety-two counties, and each county is served by the Clerk of the Circuit Court. While some
jurisdictions have one Circuit Court, Fulton County has two courts: Fulton County Circuit and Fulton County Superior Court.

The Clerk is an elected official who serves as an officer of the Court and the manager of Court information. Indiana Statute provides that the Clerk may serve up to two successive for year terms (or eight years in any period of twelve years). The Clerk serves as the chief financial officer for all revenues collected on behalf of the Court, and also serves as a member of the Fulton County Commission of Public Records.

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