Under the Local Government Act 1993 council elections are held on the second Saturday in September every four years. By-elections are conducted periodically when a councillor vacancy occurs. Councils can conduct their own elections or elections can be conducted by the NSW Electoral Commission.

Due to the NSW Government's appointment of Administrator Ian Tiley to the newly proclaimed Armidale Regional Council in 2016, the next council elections will be held on 9 September 2017.

The proclamation of Armidale Regional Council states that there will be 11 elected members (including the Mayor). The Mayor will be elected by the Councillors and will hold the office for two years.
