SHERMAN – A vote to dissolve the village of Sherman government will come down to 11 absentee and affidavit ballots.
That’s according to the Jamestown Post-Journal, which is reporting that 226 people voted in Tuesday’s dissolution vote, with 112 village residents voting in favor of the dissolution, while 114 voted against it.
According to the Chautauqua County Board of Elections, of the nine absentee ballots issued for the much-debated proposition, six have already been returned and will count toward the final results.
Also issued were two affidavit ballots, which occurs when a voter shows up at the polls but is not on the active voter registration list.
The remaining ballots will be opened Tuesday, Dec. 27.
