Village voters go to the polls Tuesday

Dozens of villages across Long Island will hold elections Tuesday for mayors, board of trustee members and village justices.

Nine villages have contested elections. Four of those feature battles for mayor -- Bellport, Woodsburgh, Lattingtown and Sag Harbor, where four candidates are running for mayor.

The other villages with contested elections are Brightwaters, Lawrence, Manorhaven, North Haven and Rockville Centre.

The village election in Westhampton Beach will be held on Friday.

One of the most interesting races is in Lattingtown, where 91-year-old Mayor Clarence F. Michalis, whose 44-year tenure makes him the longest-serving mayor in state history, faces his first challenger in four decades -- 23-year-old Nicholas DellaFera, a pharmaceutical salesman a year out of college.

Polling times vary, but most polls close at 9 p.m.
