Whiting is governed by a system of boards and commissions, including the Select Board, the Lister Board, a Planning Commission,  and Auditors.

The Town Clerk manages elections, keeps the Town’s land records, vital records, issues dog licenses, and performs many other duties. The Whiting Town Clerk is also the Town Treasurer and manages the town’s finances.
