Potentially considering how elected officials might be able to address issues such as jobs, downtown vitality, blight, public safety and stray animals, Cambridge City, Milton and Richmond voters began voting Wednesday, Oct. 11, for their council and/or mayoral candidates.

Seventy-four voters cast ballots during the first three days of in-person absentee voting at Wayne County Courthouse, according to Tara Pegg in the voter registration office.
