The City of Richmond Hill is governed by a Mayor and four at-large Council Members; all are elected by City-wide popular vote. City elections are nonpartisan; i.e. candidates do not run as members of a particular political party, and their individual party affiliations are not relevant to their positions in city government. 


The Mayor and Council serve four-year staggered terms. The purpose of this provision is to ensure that at no time is the Council composed of a full panel of freshmen members. There is a two (2) term limit placed on the position of Mayor.
