Voters in the village of Poland, New York will decide who they want for their next mayor Tuesday, but this year there are no candidates.

Kim Tranter, commissioner with the Herkimer County Board of Elections, said the village will accept write-in candidates.

“So even if they were to have one vote that person could conceivably win the election,” she said.

In order for the vote to be valid, the candidate must live in the village of Poland and be a registered voter. The village has a population of 500 people.
