There are 10 members of Alderney's States, plus a president who oversees the monthly meetings. Every member, including the president, is elected by islanders. Members serve for four years, and elections are held every two years. The president is elected every four years.
The States's constitution was changed a few years ago, doing away with its committee structure and replacing it with two committees - Policy and Finance and General Services. Recently, a third committee was created - Building and Development Control. Members are elected by their fellow States members to these committees, which oversee all aspects of life in the island.
Two members of Alderney's States are elected by their peers to sit in the States of Guernsey, where they are able to vote on issues affecting the entire Bailiwick.
