Each commissioner is required to reside in 1 of 3 districts, equally divided among the county’s population based on the census. However, each commissioner is elected by all residents of the county to serve a 4 year term, during which they discuss and determine all issues on a countywide basis.
In order to qualify for election to a seat representing a district on the Board of Commissioners, an individual must be a current resident in that district and have resided there for a minimum of 30 days prior to the close of filing.
