At the 1985, 1989 and 1993 county elections, prior to the creation of the Vale of Glamorgan county, Baruc elected a county councillor to South Glamorgan County Council. The Conservative candidate won each of these elections.
Baruc (or Barruc) was also an electoral ward to the Vale of Glamorgan Borough Council between 1973 and 1996. Until 1983 it elected three councillors (all Conservative), from the 1983 election the ward elected two councillors (again, all Conservative).
