    Meck­len­burg County was formed in 1762 from the west­ern part of Anson County, both in the Pied­mont sec­tion of the state. It was named in com­mem­o­ra­tion of the mar­riage of King George III to Char­lotte of Meck­len­burg-Stre­litz, for whom the county seat Char­lotte is named. Due to un­sure bound­aries, a large part of south and west­ern Meck­len­burg County ex­tended into areas that would later form part of the state of South Car­olina. In 1768, most of this area (the part of Meck­len­burg County west of the Catawba River) was des­ig­nated Tryon County, North Car­olina. De­ter­min­ing the final bound­aries of these "west­ern" areas be­tween North and South Car­olina was a decades-long process. As pop­u­la­tion in­creased in the area fol­low­ing the Amer­i­can Rev­o­lu­tion­ary War, in 1792 the north­east­ern part of Meck­len­burg County was taken by the North Car­olina leg­is­la­ture for Cabar­rus County. Fi­nally, in 1842 the south­east­ern part of Meck­len­burg County was c...

The BOCC is a nine-mem­ber board made up of rep­re­sen­ta­tives from each of the six county dis­tricts and three at-largerep­re­sen­ta­tives elected by the en­tire county. This elec­toral struc­ture fa­vors can­di­dates in the at-large po­si­tions who will be elected by the ma­jor­ity pop­u­la­tion of the county.

    Prior to 1928, Meck­len­burg County was strongly De­mo­c­ra­tic, sim­i­lar to most coun­ties in the Solid South. For most of the time from 1928 to 2000, it was a bell­wether county, only vot­ing against the na­tional win­ner in 1960 and 1992. For most of the sec­ond half of the 20th cen­tury, it leaned Re­pub­li­can in most pres­i­den­tial elec­tions. From 1952 to 2000, a De­mo­c­rat only won a ma­jor­ity of the county's vote twice, in 1964 and 1976; Bill Clin­tononly won a slim plu­ral­ity in 1996. How­ever, it nar­rowly voted for John Kerry in 2004 even as he lost both North Car­olina and the elec­tion. It swung hard to Barack Obama in 2008, giv­ing him the high­est mar­gin for a De­mo­c­rat in the county since Franklin D. Roo­sevelt's land­slides. Obama's mar­gin in Meck­len­burg was enough for him to nar­rowly win the state. It voted for Obama by a sim­i­lar mar­gin in 2012, and gave equally mas­sive wins to Hillary Clin­ton in 2016 and Joe Biden in 2020. Since 2008, Meck­len­bu...
