In an election held on November 3, 2009, residents voted to incorporate the community as a "Class C" municipality by a vote of 160 to 53. In a concurrent election, Bill Preston was elected unopposed as mayor. A total of eight candidates ran for the two city commissioner positions. Those seats were won by Cathy Bennett and Will Warren.
The incorporation of Ivanhoe coincided with the incorporation of a neighboring community, Ivanhoe North. The creation of both cities was seen as the first step in a process to merge both communities into a single entity, making it the second-largest city in Tyler County.
The merger of both cites to one City of Ivanhoe was approved by a vote of 194 to 60 on November 2, 2010.
Ivanhoe had a total area of 3.6 square miles (9.3 km2), of which, 3.3 square miles (8.5 km2) of it was land and 0.3 square miles (0.78 km2) was water. These are 2010 numbers, prior to the merger with Ivanhoe North.
