WILLIAMSVILLE, NY (WIVB) — There has been a major shakeup at the Williamsville Village Board.
Two former mayors, Dan DeLano and Mary Lowther, were elected to one-year terms on the board in Tuesday’s special election.
Lowther received 696 votes, while DeLano received 699 votes.
The pair defeated Deputy Mayor Dave Sherman, who got 269 votes, and John Ariola, who got 246 votes.
The town ran out of ballots due to high voter turnout, and the Board of Elections ordered election inspectors to make copies of an original blank ballot until more forms could be delivered, according to a town spokesman. About 100 of the copied ballots were mailed in by voters between 4 and 6 p.m.
Lowther and DeLano will be sworn in in July, once the results are certified.
