The Michigan Constitution provides that the voters of each county shall elect a Clerk on a partisan basis every four years.  The Genesee County Clerk's duties are prescribed by law and include being the Clerk of the 7th Circuit Court, Civil, Criminal, and Family Court Divisions, the County Board of Commissioners, the Board of Canvassers, the County Election Commission, the County Apportionment Board, Concealed Weapons Licensing Board, and the County Road Commission.


In addition, the Clerk maintains birth and death records, assumed business names (DBA), co-partnership certificates, concealed weapons permits, veterans' discharge records, marriage licenses, and notary licenses.


The County Clerk is the chief election official of the County and, therefore, supervises all national , state, and local elections.  Administration of the Michigan Campaign Finance Reporting Act is also the responsibility of the Clerk.
