Franklin County, Florida Clerk of Court and Comptroller
Michele Maxwell, Clerk of the Courts for Franklin County Florida is a duly elected Constitutional Officer as mandated by Article V, Section 16 of the Constitution of the State of Florida. The electorate of Franklin County elects the Clerk to a four-year term. Maxwell was elected to the Office of the Clerk in November 2020.
Pursuant to provisions of the Florida Constitutions, which have governed the people for over 150 years, the role of the Clerk of Courts has been established in three main areas;

Within these areas, the Clerk of Court as an elected public trustee sets in place at the county level a system of “checks and balances” which has been proven to serve the public well.
