Voters came out — even though there were no contests

FALLS VILLAGE — There were no surprises in Tuesday’s uncontested municipal elections in the town of Canaan/Falls Village. Pat Mechare returns as first selectman, with Chuck Lewis and Peter Lawson as selectmen.

Turnout was light; not surprising considering that all candidates were guaranteed a seat. Town Clerk Mary Palmer was the overall top vote getter, with 131 votes.

Mechare earned 102 votes; Lewis and Lawson had 78 and 58, respectively.

For this election, the town had a total of 733 registered voters — 250 Democrats, 206 Republicans, 275 unaffiliated and two registered with other parties.

Palmer was busy Wednesday morning swearing people in. “I’ll call them up and track them down if I have to,” she said.

In Falls Village, candidates take office immediately, with the exception of the town clerk, whose job begins in January.
