Role of the District Clerk
Caroline Woodburn, Potter County District Clerk
Potter County District Clerk's Office is probably best known by the
general public for its jurisdiction over the selection of
prospective jurors for 11 courts. Juries are drawn from a jury pool,
which consists of names of registered voters and/or holders of a
Texas driver's license or identification card.
The Potter County District Clerk's Office has other far-ranging
duties and plays a key role in the day-to-day operation of county
government. In one of its more monumental tasks, the District
Clerk's Office is responsible for custodial care and safekeeping of
all court records for five district courts and two county courts at
law located in Potter County. In conjunction with its court duties,
the office also functions as the fee collection office for court
costs. The District Clerk's Office also serves as the custodian of
over $3 million in funds paid into the registry of the court for the
benefit of minor children.
