LYNDONVILLE – It was a quiet election in Lyndonville with only one candidate on the ballot. Charles Covell was elected with all 19 of the votes cast on Tuesday.

Covell was elected to serve the remaining year of a trustee term originally won by James Whipple. He resigned after moving outside the village last year. Covell was appointed by Mayor Stephen McAvoy.

Covell, the owner of Creekside Laundromat in Lyndonville, was appointed to the Village Board on Oct. 14.
