The clerk is the custodian of the county's records, including legislative history, vital records (such as marriage and birth certificates), and other official documents. The clerk often compiles and processes these records as well as filing them, and may officiate marriage ceremonies and swearings into office. In some counties, the clerk may administer local elections.
