The Municipality of Hodoš (Slovene: Občina Hodoš [ˈóːpt͡ʃina ˈxóːdɔʃ]; Hungarian: Hodos község [ˈhodoʃ ˈkøʒeːg]) is a municipality in Slovenia. The seat of the municipality is the town of Hodoš (Hungarian: Hodos). It is part of the Prekmurje region. Both Slovene and Hungarian are official languages in the municipality. The municipality comprises two villages: Hodoš (Hungarian: Hodos) and Krplivnik (Hungarian: Kapornak).[2] The municipality was established on 7 August 1998, when it was separated from the former Municipality of Hodoš–Šalovci.[3]

Hodoš is one of the two municipalities in Slovenia where ethnic Slovenes are a minority; the other is Dobrovnik (Hungarian: Dobronak). The majority of the population is Lutheran.
