NY village holding mayoral election with no candidates

POLAND, N.Y. (AP) — A central New York village is holding a mayoral election with no candidates.
The Observer-Dispatch of Utica says the election on Tuesday is supposed to choose a replacement for village of Poland Mayor Mary Paul, who has decided to step down for personal reasons.
Since there are no candidates, the race will be decided by write-in votes.
Village Clerk Brandie Guarno says that if the winner does not want the position, he or she must resign.
Poland, located 55 miles (88 kilometers) east of Syracuse, has a population of about 500.
