 Duties of the Franklin County Clerk 

According to the Kentucky Legislative Research Commission's publication, Duties of Elected County Officials, (Informational Bulletin No. 114, Revised October 2021), the Constitution of Kentucky of 1850 was the first to mention the office of county court clerk, providing for a clerk’s election in each county for a term of 4 years (Art. VI, sec. 1). The current constitution requires the election of a county court clerk in each county for a term of 4 years (Ky. Const., sec. 99).
The duties of the county clerk fall into the general categories of clerical duties of the fiscal court:

  • ~       issuing permits and registering voters,

  • ~       recording and keeping various legal records,

  • ~       registering and purging voter rolls,

  • ~       conducting election duties, and

  • ~       conducting tax duties.
