The Auditor's office is responsible for administering federal, state, and local elections. Responsibilities include: managing the voter registration database, accepting candidate nomination papers, printing ballots, conducting the public test of voting machines, providing precinct election official training, organizing polling places, and processing absentee ballots.

In addition to elections, Auditor responsibilities include acting as secretary to the Board of Supervisors, preparing Board agendas and minutes, maintaining all official records and actions of the Board, publishing the required legal notices, keeping track of real estate ownership and property tax records, computing real estate taxes, processing beer, liquor, and cigarette permits and also performing accounting services such as accounts payable and payroll.  The Auditor's office is responsible for budgets and financial reports on behalf of the Supervisors.
