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 next election will be held May 4, 2019 when the terms of two board members will expire: Jon Thompson and Marisa Grijalva.
