The Colorado Constitution establishes the following county officers: Commissioners, Treasurer, Assessor, Coroner, Clerk and Recorder, Surveyor, and Sheriff, with duties provided under state law.
All elected officials serve four-year terms. By law, they are independent of each other and from the County Commissioners. Their powers and duties are defined in the Colorado Constitution.
County officers must be qualified electors and have resided in the county for at least one-year preceding election.
