Linn 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 Republicans, although most voters are registered as non-affiliated, it is not surprising that all three commissioners are Republican.
