There’s no contest for mayor or trustee in East Hampton Village, but voters can weigh in nevertheless when polls open on Tuesday at the Emergency Services Building on Cedar Street from noon to 9 p.m. 

Mayor Jerry Larsen, first elected in 2020, Christopher Minardi, the deputy mayor, who has worked in village government in various roles for over a decade, and Sandra Melendez, a village trustee first elected in 2020, are all running unopposed. 

Barring an unforeseen write-in campaign, each will enjoy a new four-year term.
