Board of Supervisors

The Code of Virginia provides that each county be governed by a board of supervisors, which is elected by the qualified voters. The Board of Supervisors of Albemarle County is composed of six members, one from each magisterial district. Supervisors are elected for four-year terms which are staggered at two-year intervals. The election of supervisors is held as a part of the State's general election in November of odd-numbered years.  At the first meeting of the year, the Board organizes itself and selects one of its members to serve as chairman and another to serve as vice-chairman.

For 2016 the Chair is Liz A. Palmer and the Vice – Chair is Diantha H. McKeel.
