Cowlitz County Board of Commissioners

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.  

Commissioner's Regular Meetings are every Tuesday at 9 a.m. on the 3rd floor of the Cowlitz County Administration Building, 207 4th Avenue N, Kelso, WA. Commissioners also hold various regular open public meetings throughout the week.
