Elections Department

The Simpson County Clerk Voter Registration Department performs a wide variety of duties related to the election process. We are responsible for registering voters, keeping the voter registrations up-to-date, providing voting locations, recruiting poll workers for election day, maintaining and securing the voting machines, and providing election results once the election process is complete.

If you would like to view the ballot for the upcoming election please visit the Secretary of State’s website and view the Sample Ballots.
