Also see how some of Wrentham's residents are voting and why.
The 2013 town and state primary elections are taking place today in Wrentham, and town clerk Carol Mollica said turnout is, so far, fairly low. “It’s been kind of slow, not to bad,” she said. As of noon., there were 1160 ballots with approximately 578 voters, which is about 7.5 percent of the town’s eligible voters. She added it’s a pretty accurate estimation at this point, since most residents have voted in both elections. “Just about everyone took two ballots, I think only two people so far didn’t,” she said. “I think it’s pretty close.” This year, Geroge Smith has thrown his hat in the ring again against either Gail Pratt or Joseph Botaish. Currently, there are two seats available with Smith running against the incumbents. Resident Greg…

Sen. Scott Brown has endorsed State Rep. Dan Winslow's power outage rebate bill.
State Rep. Daniel Winslow (R-Norfolk) is getting attention for a bill he proposed that would require utility companies to provide rebates for long power outages. Winslow said he proposed the bill after the outages caused by Tropical Storm Irene. "It would require the utilities to rebate customers two days for every one day where they went more than eight hours without power," he said.

Winslow pointed to the town of Princeton, Mass. as an example. He said Princeton's municipal electrical department worked aggressively after Irene devastated its lines, …
