Voters in Pennsylvania's 1,455 townships will be electing township supervisors this election cycle, but there are few candidates for most township seats in Franklin County. The primary election is Tuesday. Voters may only select from members of their own party, and the top vote-getters will advance to the Nov. 8 municipal election. In Quincy Township, resident Timothy Wyand is challenging incumbent Kerry Bumbaugh, who was first elected in 1991. He lost re-election in 2005 and regained a spot on the board two years later.
