Our district is governed by a 5-member Board of Directors who are elected to serve by the people. Public elections are held every two years and Directors serve four-year terms (for information on elections please visit the County of San Luis Obispo Clerk-Recorder Registrar of Voters). Director terms are staggered to ensure continuity. Appointments to the Board are made as necessitated by a resignation or other incidental vacating of a Board seat. The Board may make an appointment to fill the vacancy, call a special election, or defer to the County subject to law.
