About the Board

The cities and unincorporated areas in Orange County are divided into five Supervisorial Districts. Although the districts vary in physical size, their populations are approximately the same, and each district elects a Supervisor to a four-year term. Each Supervisor can serve two four-year terms.

Terms are staggered so that all districts do not have elections at the same time. The First and Third Districts will have elections in 2020, and the Second, Fourth, and Fifth Districts will have elections in 2022.

These five elected officials comprise the Orange County Board of Supervisors. Every year, the Board elects two of its members to serve as chair and vice chair.
