The County Clerk has one of the most diverse jobs of all county elected officials. In fact, 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 (County Resource Manual, Idaho Association of Counties). The County Clerk also oversees the County Assistance and Veteran Services office. In Madison County, there are over 14 deputy clerks who work in the various departments under the Clerk as well as in the Board of County Commissioners Office. In the role of Auditor, the Clerk's office is responsible to prepare the annual county budget for the Board of County Commissioners.
