County Clerk

Rick Watson

The County Clerk’s office is the “nerve center” of the county government, ranging form the daily administration of the county’s business, conducting elections, personnel administration, risk management, economic development and a host of other administrative functions.  Traditionally throughout the State of Missouri, the County Clerk is considered the Chief Administrative Officer of the county.


The County Clerk/Election Authority is responsible for many aspects of county government, including voter registration and election administration (see election page), records management, tax administration, accounts payable, payroll, and clerk to the County Commission.  He is the county’s fiscal/budget officer, election authority, human resource director and official records’ keeper.
