Description: 

The Square around the county courthouse is the physical and cultural center of both the town of Jefferson and the county of Yoknapatawpha. Bayard does not mention the courthouse in his description of the scene, but perhaps because it has not yet been completely rebuilt, the hotel on the Square is where the election was supposed to be held - until Colonel Sartoris and Drusilla took matters (and the ballot box) into their own hands.
