The three commissioners are elected to four-year terms. The county is divided into three districts on the basis of population - view the Commissioner Districts Map (PDF). At the time of the 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.
