At the Amos and Julia Ward Theater in Jay, voters cast ballots in a town with many candidates for local office: five for two Jay Town Council seats, four for highway superintendent and two for tax collector. Voters the Enterprise talked to at the poll station cited road quality and filling empty storefronts as the main factors in their voting decisions.
