Madison County Board of Commissioners

The Madison County Board of Commissioners is the elected governing board authorized by the state of North Carolina to exercise and discharge legislative responsibilities within the county. The board consists of five commissioners elected in partisan, even-year elections. They serve four-year terms.

Newly elected members take office on the first Monday in December, following the election. A chair is selected by the board from among its members. There is also an appointed county manager. The board meets on the second Monday of each month in the Madison County Courthouse. All meetings are open to the public, and the minutes of meeting are open to public inspection.

To be eligible to vote in a county election, a person must have resided in Madison County thirty (30) days prior to the election. Voter registration may be done in person at the Board of Elections, Hwy. 25/70, Marshall, 649-3731; or at the Town Halls.

The three towns in the county are each governed by a mayor and a three or five member board of alder persons.
