The Changhua County Magistrate is the chief executive of the Changhua County government in Taiwan. Initially magistrates were appointed by the Taiwan Provincial Government, but from 1951 the role has been directly elected by the population of Changhua County. The current magistrate is Wang Huei-mei of Kuomintang since 25 December 2018.
