County government in Nebraska
County government in Nebraska is organized in two ways:
- Township counties: the county is divided into townships and governed by a 7-member board of supervisors. 27 counties are governed this way.
- Commissioner counties: the county is governed by a 3- or 5-member board of commissioners, but is not divided into organized townships. 66 counties are governed in this way.
