At about 2 p.m., election officer Karen Frazier described the voting at Jessie D. Lay elementary like this: “We maybe went 20 minutes all day without having at least someone in line. It’s been pretty steady.”

The officers did mention that a few people who lived outside the city, including one local pastor, were disappointed when they were told they could not vote in the city limits only election.
