Government and Community Relations Division
The Government and Community Relations Division works directly with community businesses, schools, and organizations providing information to the general public about the services of the Jefferson County Clerk's Office. We respond to invitations to participate at fairs, festivals, parades, and trade shows on a daily basis. These appearances may involve public speaking or setting up a booth filled with information about motor vehicles, voter registration, and Election Officer recruitment. Division personnel generate correspondence for all Customer Comment Cards which are personally reviewed and signed by County Clerk, Bobbie Holsclaw.
Programs offered to the public include:
Mock Elections - Bringing actual election equipment to your location and demonstrating how to fill out a ballot and cast your vote.
B2B Roundtable forums - Deputy Clerks will come to your business and train your staff on the proper procedures for filling out the variety of legal forms and documents you need to file with the Legal Records Division of the clerk's office.
License To Vote art contest - With a generous array of gifts and prizes, this art contest encourages
K-12 students to design a license plate with a patriotic, "get out the vote" message. The annual contest is open to all public, private, parochial, and home school students in Jefferson County.
Each month, staff members participate in the Immigration and Naturalization Ceremony at the Federal Courthouse to promote voter registration. In addition to public education, the Government and Community Relations Division is responsible for overseeing legislative issues that may affect the Clerk's office and our customers, managing special events and projects, and publishing the quarterly newsletter - The V.I.P. now available to read online!
