The Orange County Board of Commissioners Elections Advisory Group (BEAG) has created a survey that will influence the process by which our commissioners will be elected in the future. 

The online survey is available now.

Please mail your request to Orange County BEAG Survey, PO Box 8181, Hillsborough, NC 27278, or call (919) 245-2302 and leave your name and address.

The online survey will close at midnight June 22. Paper surveys must be returned by June 23.

For further clarity, here is an excerpt from the press release for this survey:

The Orange County Board of Commissioners appointed the BOCC Elections Advisory Group (BEAG) in February 2021 to study how county commissioners are elected in Orange County and to recommend possible changes for consideration by the Board of Commissioners. 

As part of this process, the BEAG has developed a survey to gauge the public’s sentiment on how county commissioners are elected and whether or not the current method can be improved upon or should remain the same. 


The brief, anonymous survey will take less than five minutes to complete. Responses will be taken into consideration as the BEAG develops recommendations for changes to be considered by the BOCC.
