Running for Office

Lovettsville’s governing body consists of a Mayor, who is elected directly by Town citizens, and six Town Council Members. The Mayor is elected every two years. Each Town Council Member is elected to a four-year term. The Mayor and Town Council are responsible for setting the legislative policies of the Town. This includes approving an annual budget and capital improvements plan. They also consider land use requests such as re-zonings and conditional use permits.

The next General Election in the Town of Lovettsville will be held on May 5, 2020 and will include races for four positions, including the Mayor (term expiring June 30, 2022) and three Council Member seats (all with terms expiring June 30, 2024).
