WENDELL — There are no contested races in Monday’s annual town election, and two positions have no candidates on the ballot.

Polls will be open from noon to 8 p.m. at the Town Offices.

Laurie DiDonato, who serves as Selectboard chair, is running for reelection to another three-year term. She has been on the board for about 5½ years, having come aboard in September 2018.

“I decided to run for reelection because I really like the people I work with and feel like I still have things to contribute to the town,” she said.

There is no one on the ballot for a four-year Planning Board seat or a three-year position on the School Committee.

The other races are as follows: Martha Senn, three-year seat on the Board of Assessors; Amy Cora Simmons, three-year seat on the Board of Health; Kathleen Nolan, one-year term as moderator; Mary Thomas, five-year seat on the Planning Board; Steven Gross, three-year seat on the Planning Board; Florence Blackbird, three-year position as a cemetery commissioner; Beth Erviti, three-year term as a road commissioner; Jon Bowers, one-year term as a road commissioner; Mara Bright and Bernice Tuttle, two seats with three-year terms as library trustees; and Clifford Dornbusch, one-year term as tree warden.
