Rodewald has worked for the county for 33 years and spent the last 20 as clerk-recorder.
She first won election in 1994 among a field of eight candidates. Rodewald has since run unopposed for the office four times.
Rodewald oversaw the transition from punch ballots to fill-in-the bubble voting cards. She also implemented an electronic vote counting system prior to the 2000 election.
“We embraced the vision that we worked every day to make things as easy as possible,” Rodewald told the Tribune.
The county clerk-recorder makes $135,657 annually. Assistant clerk-recorder Tommy Gong has already announced plans to run for the office.
A primary election for the position is scheduled for June.
