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

County government in Nebraska is organized in one of two models:

  • Township counties: the county is subdivided into organized townships and governed by a 7-member board of supervisors. This is the form used by 27 counties.
  • Commissioner counties: the county is governed by a 3 to 5 member board of commissioners, but is not subdivided into organized townships. This is the form used by 66 counties.

Elected county officials[edit]

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.
