The county operates under the Commissioners (Executive Branch consisting of three elected Commissioners) and Delegation (Legislative Branch consisting of 18 elected Representatives) form of government and provides services as authorized by state statue.
The three-member Board of Commissioners (as mandated by NH Statute RSA 28) are part-time elected officials responsible for overall supervision, custody and care of all county departments, buildings and land, and have budgetary oversight of all county expenditures. They are elected into staggered four and two-year terms by the voters of the districts each are assigned to. The annual county budget is prepared by the Commissioners and Departments Heads and submitted to the County Convention for final approval.
