Township Councils


The territory of the Republic of San Marino is divided into the following nine administrative districts called "Townships":

San Marino City;
Borgo Maggiore;

Each district has a Township Council presided over by a Head of Township Council.
The Township Councils are composed of nine members for the townships with a population equal to or exceeding 2,000 inhabitants, or of seven members for the townships with less than 2,000 inhabitants.
The Township Councils and the Heads thereof are elected every five years by direct vote of San Marino citizens over 18 who reside in the Townships.
The Township Councils perform decision-making, promotional and advisory tasks and functions, and they are also responsible for the management and control of local services. The Township Councils promote decisions of the institutional bodies on general issues or on matters of interest of the Township.
