The qualified voter file is maintained by the County Clerk's office. It consists of a record for each registered voter in each jurisdiction in Presque Isle County. We also have access to a Statewide Voter Registration File. Interested parties can request a list of registered voters from a certain precinct and mailing labels for all voters within that precinct. This information can be received on a CD/DVD.
The County Clerk is the Election Coordinator for all elections in the county including federal, state, county, township, village, school districts, intermediate school districts, community college districts, and referendum and millage questions.
