Suffolk County, like many Massachusetts counties, exists today as a historical-geographical region and does not have a county government. In 1999, all functions of the former county were taken over by state agencies. Although the sheriff, district attorney, and other regional officials have specific duties, they are still elected to service duties within their respective counties. However, there is no county council, executive, or commissioners. The authority of the Suffolk County Commission was for many years exercised by Boston City Council immediately prior to the abolishment of county government. However, three of the communities in the county do not belong to the city. Communities are now allowed to create their own regional compacts that share services.
Suffolk County is a strong supporter of the Democratic Party politically. Since Calvin Coolidge's 1924 victory, no Republican presidential candidate has won the county. Barack Obama won 77.4% in 2012, while Mitt Romney received 20.8%. Martha Coakley won the county in the 2014 gubernatorial elections by a 32.4% margin. However, she lost the state election by 48.4 to 46.5%. Joe Biden was the first candidate to win over 80% of the county's vote since Lyndon B. Johnson, in 1964.
