Legislature — House

The Oregon House of Representatives consists of 60 members who are elected to serve for two-year terms. Each representative represents a district containing about 57,000 citizens. There are three Representatives with constituencies in Linn County. District lines are redrawn every ten years to account for population shifts reflected in the decennial census. The next re-districting will take place in the year 2021.

Contact information for members of the Oregon House of Representatives is located here on our page devoted to Public Officials.

Legislature — Senate

The Oregon Senate consists of 30 members who are elected to serve for four-year terms. Each senator represents a district comprising two consecutively-numbered House districts; the number of the Senate district is half the even-numbered House district. Linn County residents are served by three Senators, only one of whom, the Republican, actually lives in the county.

Executive

Oregon has five offices in the Executive branch whose heads stand for election every four years. Three of them stand for election in leap years, the same as President of the United States:  Secretary of State, Treasurer, and Attorney General. Two stand for election in the intervening even-year election:  Governor and Commissioner of Bureau of Labor & Industries.

Linn County CourtLinn County & Local Governments

Legislative and administrative functions of Linn County are in the hands of the board of three commissioners. Of the ten offices that face voters, only the commissioners are partisan. With the partisan advantage favoring the Republican Party, although most voters are registered as non-affiliated, it is not surprising that all three commissioners are Republicans. In addition to the county offices, there are 62 government entities, including 15 cities, 18 education districts, and 15 fire districts; way too many to list here. Use the links in this section to learn more about Linn County government and contact the three commissioners with concerns.
