The Lake County Commissioner District Map may help you locate your Commissioner District from the five Commissioner Districts in the County of Lake, Minnesota. 
Lake County Commissioner District Map  

However, sometimes it is difficult to tell where a precise location is in those map boundaries. The Office of the Minnesota Secretary of State, Elections & Voting section, has a Polling Place Finder. You may use this tool to find your polling place (where you vote, map & directions), districts for your precinct, “Candidates on My Ballot” (candidates and questions on the ballot at your next election, when available). Here is the link. http://pollfinder.sos.state.mn.us/

From there you may look up your specific address. Options include “Find by Zip Code” and “Search by County.” Next, enter your house number. Select your street from a drop down list. Once you have completed these steps, your results will include the following Districts for your address: Congressional, Minnesota Senate, Minnesota House, County Commissioner, Judicial, Park, Soil and Water Conservation, School and County. Your results will include County Commissioner District: 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5.
