Llanfarian had a representative on Cardiganshire County Council from the formation of the authority in 1889. The first member was Morris Davies, a local farmer, who defeated Matthew Vaughan Davies of Tanybwlch by fifteen votes. Both stood as Conservative candidates. By the next election in 1892, Vaughan Davies had converted to the Liberal Party and captured the seat which he held for many years. In 1895, he was elected Member of Parliament for Cardiganshire.

The current county councilor is Alun Lloyd Jones of Plaid Cymru.
