Duties

THE OFFICE OF COUNTY CLERK/AUDITOR/RECORDER

(also Clerk of the Board of County Commissioners & Chief Elections Officer)

Constitutional and statutory laws have given one elective county officer five distinct titles: clerk of the district court, auditor, recorder, clerk of the board of county commissioners, and chief elections officer of the county. The Idaho Constitution established the position of clerk of the district court and provides for the election of this position every four years (Article 5, Section 16). A separate section of the state constitution provides that the clerk of the district court shall be ex officio auditor and recorder (Article 18, Section 6). State law provides that the clerk of the district court be exofficio auditor, recorder and clerk of the board of county commissioners (31-2001 and 34-112). In addition the election laws specify that “County Clerk” means clerk of the district court in the electoral process (34-112).
