SACKETS HARBOR, N.Y. (WWNY) - Former Sackets Harbor Mayor Eric Constance has apparently regained his seat.

With 100 percent of precincts reporting, the Republican has 352 votes to Democrat Kevin Burke’s 203. That’s 63 to 37 percent.

It’s unclear what effect absentee ballots may have on the result.

The winner will fill a vacancy left by Molly Riley, who took a job in the administration of Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

In Black River, Republican Francis Dishaw appears to have won the mayor’s seat with 166 votes (43 percent) over independent David Leonard’s 123 (32 percent) and Republican Corey Decillis’ 94 (25 percent).

Again, it’s unclear if absentee ballots could play a part.

Chaumont has voted to stay Chaumont. In unofficial results, a proposal to dissolve the village failed 134-119, 53 to 47 percent.

If it had passed, people in the village would have had their taxes cut in half.
