The Office of Clerk of the Circuit Court is established by the Indiana State Constitution to serve as the record keeper for the Constitutionally created Court. The Clerk is elected by the residents of Vanderburgh County and is limited to serving two consecutive terms. The Clerk of the Circuit Court also serves as the Secretary to the County Election Board which is responsible for conducting all elections in the county including the certification of results. 

The Clerk serves as trustee of child support collections ordered by the Court and paid through the Clerk's Office, and also acts as the chief financial officer of the Courts by collecting, disbursing, and reconciling monies related to court. The Clerk collects filing fees, court costs, and judgment monies in civil cases and infraction cases, fees and fines for county jurisdictions, deferral and pretrial diversion fees, and bail bond monies ordered by the Courts.
