Clerk/Treasurer’s Office

Ward Clerks and Inspectors of Election

Ward Clerk - It is the general responsibility of each Ward Clerk to prepare for and oversee the operation of the ward polling place on Election Day. By statute, the Ward Clerk is charged with keeping the records of the elections held in the ward and certifying the results of the ward vote to the Clerk/Treasurer's Office.

Inspectors of Election - The Inspectors of Election are charged with presiding over and preserving order at all elections, with deciding any questions as to who should vote, with the sorting and counting of ballots, and with announcing the results to observers. Along with the Ward Clerk, the Inspectors serve as the "presiding officers" of the polling place.
