House. Comm. on Elections. Report on incompatibility of offices, 1827
H.R. 1 On January 3, 1827, the House Committee on Elections submitted its report. On June 17, 1826, the Committee had been asked to determine if
anyone from the House could be called to the Council Board and if vacancies could be filled with methods other than called for in Chapter 6 of the
Constitution. The Committee decided that yes, a House member could be called to the Council Board, but it was less clear about the vacancy issue and asked
for clarification of both questions from the Supreme Judicial Court. The Court sent its letter on January 3, 1827. Yes, it was proper for a House
member to be called to serve on the Council board, but that left a portion of the electorate without representation in the Legislature, so the Town or
district thus underserved should hold an election to fill the vacancy. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title originally held by the Massachusetts
State Library).
