Mayor Mary Marvin and Trustees Robert Underhill and Randy Mayer Reelected PDF Print Email



By Staff

Mar. 22, 2017:  All three incumbents, Mayor Mary Marvin and trustees Robert Underhill and Randy Mayer, were re-elected to the Bronxville Village Board of Trustees yesterday, March 21. Elizabeth Calderon, who ran an active campaign on the Democratic ticket was defeated by more than two to one. 

Marvin won 335 votes on the Bronxville Citizens for Responsible Growth line and 317 on the Republican line for a total of 652 votes

Underhill won 257 votes on the Bronxville Citizens line and 316 on the Republican line for a total of 573 votes.

Mayer won 247 votes on the Bronxville Citizens line and 322 on the Republican line for a total of 569 votes.

Calderon won 144 votes on the Democratic line.

While the polls closed at 9:00 pm as required by state law, the results were not completely tabulated until after 11:00 pm because of the use of paper ballots. The old metal voting booths were not used because they do not provide a paper trail. Village Administrator Jim Palmer said that the newer scanning machines now available for rent from the Westchester County Board of Elections are expensive.

#1 Voting Machine Use DATE_FORMAT_LC1
The reason that metal, lever, voting booths were not used: It is against the law to use them.
Under the The Help America Vote Act, signed into law in 2002, states were required to have more accessible, reliable voting machines in place by 2006. In 2005 New York passed the Election Reform and Modernization Act and subsequently passed extensions that allowed the use of lever voting machines after the passing of the initial deadline and passed exemptions for local compliance and for school districts and villages and other special districts. The State passed a series of extensions of these exemptions for local districts, the last of which expired on 12/31/15 and it is now not legal to use the lever machines, paper trail or no paper trail.

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville is a quaint village (one square mile) located just 16 miles north of midtown Manhattan (roughly 30 minutes on the train) and has a population of approximately 6,500. It is known as a premier community with an excellent public school (K-12) and easy access to Manhattan. Bronxville offers many amenities including an attractive business district, a hospital (Lawrence Hospital), public paddle and tennis courts, fine dining at local restaurants, two private country clubs and a community library.

While the earliest settlers of Bronxville date back to the first half of the 18th century, the history of the modern suburb of Bronxville began in 1890 when William Van Duzer Lawrence purchased a farm and commissioned the architect, William A. Bates, to design a planned community of houses for well-known artists and professionals that became a thriving art colony. This community, now called Lawrence Park, is listed on the National register of Historic Places and many of the homes still have artists’ studios. A neighborhood association within Lawrence Park called “The Hilltop Association” keeps this heritage alive with art shows and other events for neighbors.

Bronxville offers many charming neighborhoods as well as a variety of living options for residents including single family homes, town houses, cooperatives and condominiums. One of the chief benefits of living in “the village” is that your children can attend the Bronxville School.

The Bronxville postal zone (10708, known as “Bronxville PO”) includes the village of Bronxville as well as the Chester Heights section of Eastchester, parts of Tuckahoe and the Lawrence Park West, Cedar Knolls, Armour Villa and Longvale sections of Yonkers. Many of these areas have their own distinct character. For instance, the Armour Villa section has many historic homes and even has its own newsletter called “The Villa Voice” which reports on neighborhood news.
