Additional Vote Tilts Shutesbury, Massachusetts in Favor of New Library; Recount Expected

Divisions over a new 3.5-million dollar library proposed for Shutesbury Massachusetts appear likely to continue. That's even though a closely watched vote tabulation this week tipped a town referendum on whether to finance the plan into the "yes" column… by a single vote.

Town officials say one vote whose eligibility had been in question proved to be valid, making a final tally of 523 in favor, and 522 against. Town clerk Leslie Bracebridge  says the voter arrived shortly before the poles closed with only a Connecticut driver's license.

Names on Massachusett’s Presidential Primary Ballot Set

Massachusetts Secretary of State William Galvin has set the the order of candidate names on the ballot for the state's March 6 presidential primary. Ron Paul's name tops the Republican ballot followed by former governor Mitt Romney, then Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, Jon Huntsman, Michelle Bachmann and Newt Gingrich. Galvin – who drew the names randomly – says the primary is important because Massachusetts awards delegates proportionally instead of on a winner-take-all basis.
