Counties in orange are township counties; counties in blue are commissioner counties

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.

Elected county officials[change | change source]

Other county officials (such as the county Surveyor and the election commissioners) are appointed; in smaller counties, these officials may be shared by multiple counties.
