It is not true, as some Internet sites say, that Delaware has abolished its counties. It is true that property taxation was originally based on "hundreds" (a Saxon unit in early England of which there are 33 in Delaware) instead of counties, but now property taxes are levied by the municipality (if the property is in a city or town) and the county and the school district the property is in. Each county does have its own elected executive officials, legislative body, and judicial officers.
