   In the West Amwell race for one seat on the Township Committee Democrat William Corboy won with 621 votes. Republican Toby Rich had 482 votes.
   Also, about 50 absentee ballots have not been tallied as of 9 p.m. Tuesday and have been forward to the county, but they would make no difference to the outcome because of the large gap between the candidates, according to the township clerk.
   In the Stockton race for mayor, Democrat Stephen Giocondo won with 150 votes plus 5 write-ins. Republican Nicolo Messina received 103 votes plus 1 write-in.
   In the Stockton race for council (two open seats, no contests), Democrat Brian Hurff got 146 votes and Republican Jeffrey M. Castaletto, 167 votes
   Plus 20 write-in votes, not tallied yet, according to the clerk. Also in Stockton, outgoing Republican Mayor Gregg Rackin received 8 write-in votes for mayor and 27 write-in votes for council.
   In Lambertville, Democratic Mayor David Del Vecchio won a sixth term in office with 1,118 votes.
   Republican Andrew Gunn, who withdrew from the race too late to have his name removed from the ballot, received 348 votes.
