County Board Member vs County Supervisor vs County Commissioner[edit]

In Illinois there is a difference between a county board member, a county supervisor and a county commissioner. I have changed categories to distinguish this. A county board member is a member of a county board in a township form of government. They are elected from districts.

A county commissioners only exist in the sixteen counties with a county commission form of government. Cook County Commissioners take this title, but since they are a separate category I didn't bother changing their category. County supervisors date to the day before Illinois changed how it elected county legislators to a first past the post. It was basically a committee of township supervisors.
