Board of Commissioners

About the Board

The three commissioners are elected to four-year terms. The county is divided into three districts on the basis of population - click here to view Commissioner Districts Map. At the time of election, each commissioner must live in and represent his/her district. 

The commissioners are partisan and are nominated in a primary election encompassing only their district. In the general election, all county voters are given an opportunity to select the commissioners who ultimately serve.
