Voting Tuesday In Many North Country Villages
Voters in many parts of the north country will be going to the polls Tuesday to cast ballots in village elections.
In Jefferson County, the focus is on Mannsville, where voters will decide whether or not to dissolve the village.
There are a handful of contested village races as well.
Polls in most villages will open at noon and close at 9 p.m.
One of the more interesting races is in Lewis County's village of Croghan.
Two trustee seats are up for grabs, but no one wanted to run. Voters are asked to write in whomever they think is suited for the job.
Officials hope that whomever is written in will actually want to be a village trustee.
In the village of Glen Park, Robert Washer is challenging incumbent Shane Wisner, who is seeking another two-year term as trustee.
In Theresa, incumbent trustees Howard Schnettler and Thomas Roberts are being challenged by Jonathan Walker. The two candidates with the highest vote totals will each win a two-year term.
In St. Lawrence County, Hammond voters will be asked if they want to change the terms of village officers from two to four years.
And in Hermon, three people are vying for two trustee seats. The top two finishers will each win a two-year term.
