Local boards of elections are appointed to four-year terms by the Governor with Senate consent (Code Election Law Article, secs. 2-201 through 2-303). In Prince George's County, the Board of Elections consists of five members and three substitutes (Code Election Law Article, sec. 2-201(j)).
The Board originated as the Board of Supervisors of Elections in 1892 and was renamed the Board of Elections in 1999 (Chapter 585, Acts of 1998).
