Size of County Board


The DeKalb County Board has 24 members. There is quite a range in Illinois and perhaps not always the way one would think. For example, Cook County has 17 District Commissioners, Winnebago 36. Sangamon County residents will vote next week on a non-binding resolution recommending reduction of its Board from 29 members to 15, a move that would save enough dough to hire a couple more Sheriff’s deputies.
