Plumsted Election Guide

Local elections matter. While most media outlets focus on national candidates, we often overlook local races. The two most impactful elected governing bodies in Plumsted are the Township Committee and the Board of Education (BOE). Keep reading to learn more about our current elected officials and how our local government works.

How do local elections work?

Township Committee Members and BOE Members are elected to serve for three-year terms during the November election cycle each year. Elected members appoint the Mayor and Deputy Mayor at an annual reorganization meeting held in January. The BOE uses the same process for selecting the President and Vice President of the board. These appointed leadership roles are held for one-year.
