The form of government in Tallahassee started out as a Mayor/Council type when it was incorporated on 9 December 1825. Later, in 1919, the form was changed to a commission/manager type which it still maintains today. The only change came in November of 1996, when a referendum was passed by the city voters mandating the direct election of the Mayor.
