The city of Charlotte has a council-manager form of government. The mayor and members of the City Council are elected every two years in staggered terms. In 2017, the mayor was Vi Lyles (D). Members from each of Charlotte's 10 wards make up the City Council; some serve four-year terms while others are elected to two-year seats. There is no term limit for either position, though if an incumbent fails to win re-election they cannot run again in that ward for at least one election cycle. The current president pro tempore is Democrat Dimple Ajmera Mehta who replaced Republican Ed Driggs on January 1, 2018 after he resigned due to health reasons; she will serve until December 31 when a new council member takes office and then can continue as President Pro Tempore or step down depending on her wishes In 2016 there were three African American female members: LaWana Mayfield (District 2), Patsy Kinsey (District 6) and Julie Eiselt( District 7); all three were Democrats .
