This page provides links to pages on those who have served in Warren County Office positions through the years.  Most county officials are elected in November and begin office in January of the following year.  The term varies by office.  Most are four year terms but it was not always the case in the earlier years.  The date for the years served reflect the year the official actually took office not the year they were elected.  The Warren County Genealogical Society has copies of most election years and information on each of these offices in our resource library.  This is the most accurate record available made possible by extensive research from WCGS volunteer Vicki Bergerhouse.  Click on the below link for the specified office.
