Residents of Jefferson and St. Lawrence counties voted to allow casino gambling in New York state while Lewis County residents voted against it, according to unofficial results.

The three counties voted against a proposal to allow some state judges to serve past the age of 70.

All three counties voted overwhelmingly to approve an amendment that would allow disabled veterans to receive additional civil service credit upon appointment to or promotion at a civil service job.

All three counties also voted to allow municipalities to exclude debts incurred from the construction or reconstruction of sewage facilities from their constitutional debt limits, and to allow the state to swap parcels of land between state andprivate entities.
