Local boards of elections are appointed to four-year terms by the Governor with Senate consent. In all but one county, each board consists of five members. Two members and one substitute come from the majority political party, and one member and substitute come from the principal minority party. In Prince George's County, the board includes five members and three substitutes (Code Election Law Article, secs. 2-201 through 2-207).
