      Great question! District officers should file their oaths of office with the county clerk.

      § 52-1-3. County, precinct and district officers —
      Official oaths and bonds of county, precinct and district officers shall be filed with the county clerk, except those of the county clerk which shall be filed with the county treasurer.
