Voting the Republican line can catch every candidate for office in Granville Nov. 8 as Election Day becomes appointment day for elected officials without opponents in area races.

In Granville, none of the seven races taking place features an opponent.

Supervisor Matt Hicks has no opposite number when he seeks his first full term after winning the end of the term started by the late Rodger Hurley.

Board members Mary Emery and Matt Rathbun also run unopposed for a win that will place them on the town board until 2016.

Town Clerk Jenny Martelle seeks a fourth term and highway superintendent John Tanner seeks election to another term with no opposition.

Judge Roger Forando, and candidate for the second judge’s spot Ron Daigle Jr., also each run unopposed for the town’s two judge positions.

Village Clerk Treasurer Rick Roberts said voting districts two and three located at the village hall will see a fraction of the turnout which might be expected for races accompanying a Presidential contest such as 2008 or 2012.

In the race for Washington County Treasurer Albert Nolette, already the current deputy county treasurer, will face off with the opponent he defeated in the Republican Party primary Gayle Hall.

Hall, the former Fort Ann Supervisor, made the general election by securing the Independence Party line.

In  Hartford, although there are new candidates on the ballot, no races are contested.

Supervisor Dana Haff faces no challenger after winning the Republican Primary for the seat.

Also up for election is former supervisor Henry Gallinari, making his return to town politics, seeking to fill the remaining two-year term of Councilman Lee Wilson. Wilson resigned over the summer citing difficulties working with Haff.

Newcomer Elizabeth Foote seeks the chair opened up when Councilman Robert Miller decided against another term and incumbent Kevin Eastman seeks to return to his seat on the Hartford town board. 

In the area, only the Town of Hebron has contested positions. Someone will be without a seat when three candidates vie for two seats for town board.

Incumbents B. Martin Warner and James Nelson are joined by Democrat Robert Nailor seeking four year councilman seats.

In the second race in Hebron, incumbent Floyd Pratt faces challenger Ivan Watros for town highway superintendent position.

Also running for reelection, unopposed, is supervisor and current Washington County Budget Officer Brian Campbell.
