Initially, Mukinbudin was governed by the Merredin Road District. In 1921, the Nungarin Road District was gazetted, and on 1 November 1933 Mukinbudin, which had grown considerably in the intervening years, was gazetted separately. Its first election was held on 18 November 1933, and Thomas Basil Conway was elected its inaugural chairman at its first meeting.
On 1 July 1961, it became a Shire under the Local Government Act 1960.Mukinbudin
