The Jeff Davis County government, under the leadership of a five-person elected commission, provides high-quality essential services for Jeff Davis County residents. Each commissioner represents a specific district within the county (see district map here). They serve four-year staggered terms.


Each commissioner also serves other committees in specialized areas within the county, such as the Recreation Department, the Hospital Authority, the Joint Development Authority and other advisory boards. 


County Commissioner Board meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month. All meetings are open to the public.
