Hedmark County Council

Governance in Norway is conducted on three levels; state level, county level and municipal level. While the term county (fylke) denotes the geographical area, the County Council (fylkestinget) is the democratically elected body. The Hedmark County Council consists of 33 representatives elected by the inhabitants of Hedmark every fourth year.

The county of Hedmark covers an area of 27 397 square kilometres and has 195 155 inhabitants (April 2015). The county is situated in the eastern part of Norway, bordering the counties of Sør-Trøndelag, Oppland and Akershus. Hedmark also borders to Sweden. The county administration is in Hamar, situated 120 kilometres from the Norwegian capital Oslo and one hour’s drive from Norway’s main airport Gardermoen.
