Coronavirus Update from Clerk's Office

The Harrison County Clerk’s Office is considered an essential service and is working regular hours of Monday through Friday 8am to 4:30 pm. The County Commissioners have taken precautionary measures and have closed all County buildings to the public until April 24th when they will re-access the situation. Clerk, Sherry Brown, recommends calling her office at 812-738-4289 as of April 24th to confirm whether the office is open to the public as of that date but phone calls are being taken daily.

With the Primary Election being postponed until June 2nd preparations now include adding sanitizing wipes and hand sanitizer to each polling location’s supplies.  Early, in person voting is currently scheduled to begin April 7 but the Indiana Election Commission will meet at 10am on March 25 to make further decisions on postponements.

Poll workers are still needed.  In 2018 General Election 126 of the 207 poll workers in Harrison County were over the age of 60.  With that age group being advised to limit their contact with the public the Clerk is asking registered voters under the age of 60 to consider working the polls June 2nd.  Positions pay $150, $125 and $100 and meals are provided.   There are a few positions that 16 and 17 year olds can fill without being registered to vote.  They must have a grade point average of at least 3.0 per Indiana Code.  College and high school students are encouraged to take part in the Election process.  If interested in working the polls please call and ask for Sherry Brown or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
