What We do

Welcome to the Waukesha County Clerk's Area.

The Waukesha County Clerk's office is a State Constitutional office, with the clerk being elected every four years by the people of Waukesha County.

The function of the County clerk's office can be broken down into three major areas; Election Administration, Legislative Support & Administrative Services.

Within these three areas, the office is responsible for all the records as required by the state statutes and is clerk to the county board. For elections, the Clerk's office prepares and distributes the ballots and supplies, programs election equipment, works with municipalities on voter registration and training, receives and tabulates unofficial elections results and runs the board of canvass for all county, state and federal offices in Waukesha County. The office also distributes marriage licenses, works with municipalities on dog licenses and is a US Passport acceptance agency.
