Missoula County Commissioner Districts

The Missoula County Commissioner Districts changed based on population using the U.S. Census 2010 actual counts. Changes are in accordance with Montana Code Annotated 7-4-2102 which states "following each federal decennial census, the board of county commissioners shall divide their respective counties into as many commissioner districts as there are county commissioners and ensure that the districts are as compact and equal in population and area as possible."

The commissioners held a public meeting about the proposed district boundaries on Wednesday, November 16th 2012 at 1:30 p.m. in room 201 of the Missoula County Courthouse Annex.

Voters are reminded that county commissioners are elected at large, which means they are elected by all voters in Missoula County. Each commissioner must reside in a distinct district, however. Changes to commissioner district boundaries only affects which citizens can file and run in each district.

County-wide and urban area maps are available to interested citizens.
