Local sejmiks for the voivodeship took place at Raciaz, the town located in the middle of the province During the reign of King Stanisław II Augustus, the sejmiks were moved to Płock The voivodeship had five senators: the Bishop of Płock, the Voivode of Płock, the Castellan of Płock, and Castellans of Raciaz and Sierpc Land courts were located in Płock, Bielsk and Sierpc since 1726, also in Mława"
