Date Introduced 02/01/2024

Currently, in a county with a population of 70,000 or more, the
board of county commissioners (board) may consist of 3 commissioners
from 3 districts, with one commissioner elected from each district by
voters of the whole county. Alternatively, the board may consist of 5
commissioners, the county may be divided into 3 or 5 districts, and the
commissioners may be elected pursuant to one of 10 alternative methods.
The bill eliminates this discretionary system and instead requires
that all counties with a population of 70,000 or more have 5
commissioners, with at least 3 commissioners elected only by voters
resident in the district from which each commissioner runs for election.
The bill allows the counties to choose between 2 election alternatives:
  • 3 commissioners resident in 3 districts elected by voters
resident in those districts and 2 commissioners elected at
large; or
  • 5 commissioners resident in 5 districts elected only by
voters resident in those districts.
The bill makes conforming amendments to statutory provisions
concerning commissioner districts and election petition statutes. The bill
does not affect counties that have adopted home rule.
