Each of the 14 regions of Namibia is divided into electoral constituencies. The size of the constituencies changes with the size and population of each region. There are currently 121 constituencies in Namibia. The most populous constituency was Rundu Urban in the Kavango West region with 63,431 people; the least populous was Okatyali in the Oshana region with 3,187 people.

Local councillors are directly elected through regional elections by residents of the constituencies. Councillors occupy a constituency office in the main settlement of their region. Councillors keep their full-time job and are expected to run their constituencies. Councillors receive allowances similar to a mid-range salary. Regional councillors are indirectly elected from and by the constituency councillors in each region. Each region sends three of their local councillors to represent their region in the National Council of Namibia.
