Elections will take place Tuesday in three St. Lawrence County villages.

In the village of Hammond, Trustee Amanda Clemmons is not seeking re-election. Resident Corin Phalen is currently running unopposed for the two-year term.

The vote will take place from noon to 9 p.m. at the Hammond Fire Hall.

Hammond voters will also decide whether to extend top officials’ term limits from two to four years. If the vote passes, the mayor and trustees will run for four-year terms starting in 2014, Mayor Shelly Youngs said.

“I think extending the term limits is more cost-effective and beneficial for the trustee who is trying to learn the ins and outs of the village,” Ms. Youngs said. “You’d be surprised how quickly two years goes by. Also, it costs the taxpayers every time we hold an election.”

Village of Richville Mayor Ella Mae Fenlong and Trustees Rachel Riley and Carol Jenkins Jr. will be unopposed running for two-year terms. The vote will be held from noon to 9 p.m. at the village office, 87 Main St.

Morristown Mayor Cheryl A. Shatraw and village Trustee Francis Colby are running unopposed for re-election to two-year terms. The vote will take place from noon to 9 p.m. Tuesday at the Morristown Fire Hall.
