DeKalb is the only county government in metropolitan Atlanta to have a Chief Executive Officer in addition to the Board of Commissioners.

The Reorganization Act of 1985 provides that the Board, comprised of one Commissioner for each of the county's five Districts and two Super Districts, set policy and appropriate funding for the county operations, and that the CEO, elected countywide, administers the day-to-day operations of the county government and manages its 7,000 employees. The CEO, limited to two consecutive four-year terms, presides over the twice-monthly meetings of the Board, but can only vote on business items in the event of a tie.
