The Clerk’s Office also pays all the bills for the County. The County Clerk is the Secretary to the Board of Commissioners. The Board of Commissioners oversee the operations of the County and adopts the final budget.
Seward County’s population is 17,609 and because of this size, the County Clerk’s Office is also the Register of Deeds and Election Commissioner.

The Election Commissioner handles all candidate filings and prepares and conducts all elections for Seward County. In counties with a larger population, these offices are separate from the County Clerk’s Office.
