Wapello County is administered by a three-member Board of Supervisors who are elected for four-year terms. Other elected officials include the Attorney, Auditor, Recorder, Sheriff, and Treasurer.

The county was created on February 17, 1843, from unorganized territory. The county opened at midnight with several hundred eager settlers camped along the eastern border. Within a month, Wapello County was home to more than 5,000 people.
