Residents heading to polls for local elections

Residents from villages across the Hudson Valley are heading to the polls Wednesday to cast votes in local elections.

In Sleepy Hollow, voters are choosing a new mayor after Philip Zegarelli, who served for 10 years, chose not to seek re-election. Republican real estate attorney Alan Singer and first-term Democratic village trustee Kenneth Wray are looking to fill the position.

"[Zegarelli] was a tremendous asset to the village and we all appreciate everything he did, but I think both candidates are good,? says Kay Brown Grala, of Sleepy Hollow.

The polls will be open until 9 p.m.
