The office of the County Clerk, sometimes referred to as “Keeper of the Records,” is probably one of the first and oldest offices in the State.
After the organization of the State, official sanction was given to the office, and the name “County Clerk” was conferred upon the official in charge. The first reference to the office under this title appears in the law passed in June 7, 1779. The law, giving legal status to the office, was passed in 1806. The office was provided for in the Constitution of 1844 and again in the most recent Constitution of 1947, The County Clerk is therefore referred to as a “Constitutional Officer.”.
There is now a County Clerk elected in each of the twenty-one counties. Each County Clerk is elected for a term of five years. The Clerk must act in accordance with the statutes set up for his office by the State Legislature.
