The Richmond County Board of Commissioners is a 7-member board elected to serve 4-year terms. The Commissioners are all elected at-large rather than by district, and the terms of office are staggered so that 4 members are elected during an even-numbered election year, and then 3 members are elected two years later on the next even-numbered election year.
Commissioners take an oath of office on the first Tuesday of December following the November in which they were elected. The Chairman and Vice-Chairman of the Board of Commissioners are elected by the 7 board members during the organizational meeting held on the First Tuesday in December of each year.
