When Election Day arrives Tuesday, voters in Islip Town will do something they’ve never done before, and voters in North Hempstead Town will face an option they haven't had to consider in almost a decade.

Islip is holding elections for council districts created last year as part of the settlement of a federal voting rights lawsuit. In the 1st District, Democrat Jorge C. Guadron faces Republican Manuel Troche. In the 2nd District race, incumbent Councilman James P. O’Connor is being challenged by Democrat Darrin Green. The terms are for four years.

In North Hempstead Town, voters’ choices for town supervisor will not include Judi Bosworth. That hasn’t happened since 2014.

Bosworth, 73, announced in January that she would not seek reelection to a fifth term.

"Change is healthy and now is the right time for me to conclude my tenure in office," Bosworth said.

Would-be successors include Democrat Wayne H. Wink Jr., 54, of Roslyn, and Jennifer S. DeSena, 52, of Manhasset, a registered Democrat running on the Republican and Conservative party lines.

Wink has been the North Hempstead Town Clerk since 2013. He has been a town councilman and Nassau County legislator for the 11th District. DeSena is executive director of the nonprofit Manhasset Community Coalition Against Substance Abuse.

Here’s a sampling of other races voters will cast ballots for across Long Island:

LONG BEACH

Six candidates are vying for three city council seats. The top two vote-getters are elected to a four-year term and the third place runner-up serves a two-year term.

City Council president John Bendo, 58, is running for his second term. Tina M. Posterli, 55, a former Long Beach school board president, and Roy Lester, 71, a lawyer, are running on the Democratic ticket.

Incumbent Mike DeLury, 62, a registered Democrat who was elected as a Republican, is running for his second term. Daniel Creighton, 50, and John McQuade, 27, are running on the Republican ticket with DeLury.

HUNTINGTON TOWN

Supervisor Chad Lupinacci announced in February that he would not seek reelection following several controversies, including being sued for sexual harassment by a former staffer who worked for him when he was a state assemblyman.

That sets up a race between Republican Conservative candidate and Deputy Town Supervisor Ed Smyth, 50, of Lloyd Harbor, and Rebecca Sanin, 42, of Huntington Station, who is running on the Democratic and Working Families party lines. She is president and CEO of the Health and Welfare Council of Long Island and a former Suffolk County assistant deputy county executive.

BROOKHAVEN TOWN

Town Clerk Donna Lent, an Independence Party member running with Republican and Conservative endorsements, is facing a challenge from Democrat Ira P. Costell for a four-year term.

RIVERHEAD TOWN

Incumbent Town Supervisor Yvette Aguiar is running for reelection to a second term on the Republican and Conservative lines. She is the first Latina supervisor in Riverhead’s 227-year history. Aguiar has pledged to continue working on revitalizing the downtown area and resume enforcement of town codes once the COVID-19 eviction moratorium is lifted.
