Albemarle is governed by a council-manager-mayor plan.
Albemarle was founded as the county seat of Stanly County in 1871. The City of Albemarle is served by Mayor Elbert L. Whitley and seven council members. Council meetings are held the first and third Mondays of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the City Annex Building at 157 North Second Street in downtown Albemarle. These members serve 4-year terms. The council hired City Manager Raymond Allen in 1986, who continues to serve in that capacity.
