A Brief History

In 1851, the first Code of Iowa gave the duties covered by the office of the County Auditor to the County Judge. With the formation of the Board of Supervisors in 1861, the duties were passed to the Clerk of Court. In 1870, as a part of reorganizing county government, the office of County Auditor was created.

It was in the early 1970’s that the State Legislature added the duties of Commissioner of Elections to the office.
