This year has had ups and downs for everyone and our office is no different. When you work in an office you often spend more time there than at your own home, as such you share your sorrows and your triumphs together. We support each other, comfort each other, and work together to solve problems. Today we support one of our own as she is in Chicago receiving her 4th round of Chemo to fight Breast Cancer. She is a trooper and comes to work while receiving treatment, making it look simple. We know it is not and try to support her. #throatpunchcancer

**Update** We are back up and running. Thank you to Nipsco and the Porter County IT Department for correctly everything so swiftly.

Due to a partial power outage many of the computers at the Valparaiso Court House Clerk's Office are down. This may cause slower service we ask for your patience at this time. The elevator is also currently out of service.

Congratulations to the Porter County Elections & Registration and the Porter County Auditor’s offices for accomplishing such a large task in such a short time! Kudos to you all!!

We are missing MANY people from this photo of the DREAM TEAM, including the Director and Assistant Director of Porter County Elections & Registration, the rest of their staff, and the rest of the Porter County Auditor’s office but shortly after close of business this afternoon the Porter County Auditor Vicki Urbanik presented Porter County Clerk Jessica Bailey with the 2020 Primary Election’s Poll Worker checks. Poll Workers are asked to give the office 6-8 weeks to process payroll after the election, we are proud to announce that Poll Worker checks will be mailed this time in less than 4 weeks for this election. This is a magnificent feat and it couldn’t have possible without the teamwork and dedication from both offices. Thank you to everyone involved!!
