CHESHIRE — Cheshire voters have 14 elected positions to fill in the annual town election this spring.

Two Select Board seats highlight the May 3 ballot, with one of them lacking an incumbent. Veteran Selectman Robert Ciskowski resigned Jan. 26, with about three months left on his three-year term.

Other three-year terms up for grabs are one each for Board of Assessors, Board of Health, Water Commission, Cemetery Commission, tax collector and town clerk.

There also is a one-year unexpired term for Water Commission.

The Planning Board has three seats on the ballot: a regular five-year term and two unexpired terms, one for four years and the other for two years.

Rounding out the ballot are two seats on the Hoosac Valley Regional School District Committee. The openings are three-year stints, one representing Adams, the other Cheshire on the seven-person panel. In regional school systems, voters cast ballots for all candidates.

Nomination papers are available by appointment with the town clerk from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday. Papers with names of Cheshire registered voters are due no later than 5 p.m. March 15.

The last day to register to vote on May 3, if not already signed up, is April 13, from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., at the town clerk's office.
