The Role of the County Clerk

Constitutional and statutory laws have given this 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 establishes 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 ex-officio 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).
