Board Elections
Elections for Dripping Springs ISD Board of Trustees positions are held each May, with either two or three seats coming up for re-election as terms are three years in length. DSISD trustees do not represent "places"; they are at-large representatives.

The most recent election was May 6, 2017, when Barbara Stroud was re-elected to her fourth term and Ron Jones was re-elected to his second term on the Board. In 2018, the terms of Carrie Fontana-Kroll, Mary Jane Hetrick and Shannon O'Connor will end.

Voting Schedules
Elections typically are held on the first Saturday in May, with polling locations assigned by precinct. An early voting period is scheduled starting approximately 12 days prior to Election Day and running until the Tuesday preceding Election Day. Early voting is generally scheduled at one location.
