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.
Application GuidelinesIf you would like to be included on the ballot for county office, follow these three steps. 1) Contact the county elections officer or your party's county chair. The elections officer can provide information about the availability of filing papers and answer questions regarding nominating petitions and other ballot procedures. 2) Arrange to pick up required paperwork. 3) Return your completed paperwork within the designated filing window. Political party candidates file with their party's county chair. Independent candidates file with the county judge. If a party nominates a candidate who dies, withdraws, or is determined ineligible, the deadline for candidates from that party to file is extended by five days.
