The “Yes” side of the Jones Library referendum picked up 14 more votes, while the “No” side added two, as 17 ballots that were not counted on Election Day were opened Monday at Town Hall.
The 14 extra “Yes” votes brings the unofficial total to 3,201, or 65.5 percent. The unofficial “No” vote total is now 1,685. Some overseas and provisional ballots remain to be counted.
The closest race on Election Day was for second place in the District 4 Town Councilor competition. There was no change in the outcome; Pamela Rooney was still ahead of Evan Ross, but Ross has called for a recount.
Extra votes for at-large Town Council candidates were: Ellisha Walker, 13; Mandi Jo Hanneke, 11; Andrew Steinberg, 9; Vira Douangmany Cage, 4; and Vince O’Connor, 3.
