State Supreme Court Justice Timothy Walker has ruled against a petition to provide voters in Amherst a referendum on a ward system for the town.

Such a system would have candidates for the Town Board represent defined districts as opposed to the Town as a whole. A similar petition was narrowly rejected by voters in 2010.

Town Democrats were supporting the current petition, while Republicans were opposed to it.
