The Lincoln County Board of Commissioners is the county’s leg­isla­tive body. The com­mis­sion­ers serve as the chief ad­min­is­tra­tors for sev­er­al im­por­tant coun­ty op­er­a­tions and have some quasi-​judicial du­ties, as well.The Board con­sists of three com­mis­sion­ers, one from each of the Commissioner dis­tricts. The coun­ty is di­vid­ed in­to three dis­tricts on the ba­sis of pop­u­la­tion and at the time of elec­tion each com­mis­sion­er must live in and rep­re­sent his/​her dis­trict. The com­mis­sion­ers are par­ti­san and are nom­i­nat­ed in a pri­ma­ry elec­tion vot­ed on by on­ly their dis­trict. All the vot­ers in the coun­ty are given an op­por­tu­ni­ty in the gen­er­al elec­tion to se­lect the com­mis­sion­er who will ul­ti­mate­ly serve. The com­mis­sion­ers are elect­ed to four-​year stag­gered terms, with no more than two com­mis­sion­ers stand­ing for elec­tion in a sin­gle year.The com­mis­sion­ers pri­ma­ry du­ty is to levy the tax­es to op­er­ate the coun­ty and to adopt a bal­anced bud­get for each cal­en­dar year. Also with­in their leg­isla­tive au­thor­i­ty ca­pac­i­ty, the com­mis­sion­ers are re­spon­si­ble for es­tab­lish­ing lo­cal laws and poli­cies con­sis­tent with state law, through the en­act­ment of or­di­nances and res­o­lu­tions. These in­clude zon­ing, plan­ning and pub­lic safe­ty or­di­nances and any oth­er or­di­nance con­cern­ing the gen­er­al wel­fare of the coun­ty. The com­mis­sion­ers al­so ap­point mem­bers of cit­i­zen ad­vi­so­ry pan­els, hear­ing ex­am­in­ers and mem­bers of the Board of Equalization. They are al­so charged with ap­prov­ing all con­tracts and grant agree­ments as ad­min­is­tra­tors, com­mis­sion­ers are re­spon­si­ble for:

* Public roads and pub­lic works pro­grams
* Public health ser­vices
* Planning and zon­ing of un­in­cor­po­rat­ed ar­eas
* Emergency ser­vices
* Other ser­vices and pro­grams which are not clear­ly the re­spon­si­bil­i­ty of an­oth­er elect­ed coun­ty of­fi­cial

In their ju­di­cial ca­pac­i­ty, the com­mis­sion­ers can be called up­on as the first lev­el of ap­peal to sit in judg­ment of de­ci­sions made by oth­er coun­ty of­fi­cials.
