Where did Shore rank in hart voting?

Ultimate hockey seems to have found Shore the better in that year.
It appears that only two players received votes for the Hart Trophy that season.

(from BM67's original post in History of Hockey, on page 5 of the Awards forum)

1. Howie Morenz, Mtl C
2. Ching Johnson, NYR D

And again, the original All-Star voting article as it appeared in the Globe and Mail.

All-Star Team Voting for 1931-32

Source: Wednesday, March 2, 1932; Globe & Mail, page 12

The newspaper listed the all-stars of each writer over the course of several weeks. I'm not going to go through and add all of that up myself. They do provide some aggregated data, though. There were 32 writers in total.

No players earned a unanimous spot on the all-star team. Ching Johnson (1st team Defense) earned the most votes; he was chosen by "all but two" writers and "22 times on the first team" (therefore he must have received 22 first-place votes and 8 second-place votes). Eddie Shore (1st team D) and Bill Cook (1st team RW) were selected by 29 writers; Charlie Conacher (2nd team RW) was listed on 27 ballots, Chuck Gardiner (1st team G) on 26 and Busher Jackson (1st team LW) on 18.
