The Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) is the county’s legislative and budget authority.

The three county commissioners are elected to four-year terms. The county is divided into three districts of relatively equal population as determined by federal census every 10 years. At the time of election, each commissioner must live in and represent his/her district. The commissioner positions are partisan, and candidates are selected via a primary election in their particular district. The top two vote-getters advance to the general election, then all Lewis County voters help select the commissioner who will ultimately serve.

The Lewis County Commissioners meet at 10:00 a.m. each Tuesday in the BOCC Hearing Room – 2nd floor, Historic Courthouse, 351 NW North Street, Chehalis, Washington. A chair is elected annually to preside over these meetings. The current chair is Lindsey R. Pollock, DVM. The Commissioners also serve as the Board for the Lewis County Health Board (current chair is Lindsey R. Pollock, DVM) and the Lewis County Solid Waste Disposal District #1 (current chair is Sean D. Swope).
