Chris Daniel District Clerk Court Clerk office responsible for Jury Duty, Court Registry & child support, and record keeper to all District & County Criminal Courts + passport office

Role of the Harris County District Clerk: The Harris County District Clerk's Office is probably best known by the general public for its jurisdiction over the summoning of prospective jurors for 74 courts. Juries are drawn from a jury wheel, which consists of names of registered voters and/or holders of a Texas driver's license or identification card. The Harris 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 59 District Courts and 15 County Criminal Courts located in Harris County. In conjunction with its court duties, the office also accounts for all monies paid as deposits on civil cases (causes) awaiting disposition and all funds awarded minors in court action that are paid into the court registry. In addition, the Harris County District Clerk has the important responsibility of providing customer service to all child support cases (causes) heard in Harris County. The office is led by Harris County District Clerk Chris Daniel, who was elected in 2010, Daniel heads an office with about 450 employees and oversees a $32 million budget that has remained lean even as the county has put the recession behind it. His office staffs 76 courts with clerks, maintains records for these courts and runs jury service. During his first term, Daniel has kept the office focused on turning more and more courts into efficient, cost-saving e-courts, modernizing the subpoena process and offering additional services to aid residents, such as a quick, convenient passport operation. He also demonstrates the bridge-building and diplomacy required when he works with scores of judges and county officials to improve court operations.
