Mount Laurel voted to change its form of government in 1970 from a Township Committee form to a Faulkner Act system using the Council-Manager (Plan E), enacted based on the recommendations of a Charter Study Commission as of January 1, 1972. In this form of government, the Township Manager oversees the daily functions of the Township. Township government consists of a Township Council made up of five members elected at-large in partisan elections to serve four-year terms on a staggered basis, with either two or three seats coming up for election in even-numbered years as part of the November general election. At an annual reorganization meeting held in January, the council selects one of its members to serve as mayor and another to serve as deputy mayor, each for a one-year term.

As of 2019, members of the Mount Laurel Township Council are Mayor Kurt D. Folcher (R, term on council ends December 31, 2020; term as mayor ends 2019), Deputy Mayor Linda Bobo (R, term on council ends 2020; term as deputy mayor ends 2019), Irwin Edelson (R, 2020), Kareem Pritchett (D, 2022) and Stephen Steglik (D, 2022).
