    Board of Trustees members are elected countywide in non-partisan elections, and they currently represent constituent districts as follows: two members from District 1-2 (East of the Cooper), three members from Districts 3,9, 10, and 23 (West of the Ashley), three members from District 4 (North Charleston), and one member from District 20 (downtown Charleston).

    In November 2020, five seats will be filled for two-year terms. This will be a transition to single-member districts which will begin with the November 2022 election. Beginning in November 2022, all nine seats will be elected from non-partisan single-member districts with election terms a combination of four-year and two-year terms. By November 2024, all seats will have four-year terms.

    Board members do not receive a salary; however, they do receive a per diem of $25 per scheduled board meeting.
