I am pleased to welcome you to our web site, which is designed to offer information about the Circuit Clerk's office and help you to utilize the services and resources the Circuit Court Clerk and the 11th Judicial Circuit provide.

The Court Clerk is a constitutional officer elected every four years by the voters of Logan County. The duties and responsibilities of the Circuit Court Clerk are established by state statute, the Illinois Supreme Court and the local rules of the 11th Judicial Circuit.

The Circuit Clerk's primary function is to establish, maintain and keep all records of the court and the official court seal. In addition, the Court Clerk serves as the administrative arm of the Court and is responsible for all financial duties relating to the Court system. All monies owed to the Court are collected and distributed by the Circuit Clerk.
