Constitution
Charter of Virginia Beach

The Virginia Beach City Council is the legislative branch that governs the City of Virginia Beach and its more than 400,000 citizens. It has 11 members that serve four-year terms and are elected on a staggered basis. General elections are held the Tuesday following the first Monday in November in even-numbered years. All registered voters are eligible to vote for all members of City Council. Three Council Members and the Mayor serve "At Large" with no district residency requirement. All other Council Members are required to live in the districts they represent: Bayside, Beach, Centerville, Kempsville, Lynnhaven, Princess Anne, and Rose Hall. The Council holds regular meetings on alternate Tuesday evenings on the second floor of the Virginia Beach City Hall.[1]

History

1988

Starting with the fall 1988 election, the city's mayor was chosen chosen directly by voters. Previously, the mayor was appointed from among city council members elected to represent the city's various boroughs. In that election, Meyera Oberndorf became the city's first female mayor and first to be directly elected.[2]

1998

In 1998, Virginia Beach abolished its system of boroughs from which seven council members were elected from and formed in their place seven new districts including Centerville, Kempsville, Rose Hall, Bayside, Lynnhaven, Beach, and Princess Anne.[3]

2020

On October 6, 2020, a trial began in Virginia Beach between residents Latasha Holloway and Georgia Allen and the City of Virginia Beach. Filing their lawsuit in 2017, the residents allege that the city's process for electing members to the city council violates the 1965 Voting Rights Act. The lawsuit claims that the current system unlawfully dilutes minority voting strength and denies minorities an equal opportunity to elect candidates of their choice.[4] That same day, the city council cancelled their regular meeting after council member John Moss tested positive for COVID-19.[5] Two days later, it was announced that, due to the ongoing pandemic, council meetings would now be held at the Virginia Beach Convention Center.[6]
