A last-minute write-in campaign has secured Mercersburg Mayor James C. Zeger a place on the ballot in the Nov. 5 municipal election. The Franklin County Board of Elections on Thursday released its write-in results from last week's primary election. Candidates now have a few days to submit documents asking that various spellings of their names - such as John Doe and John A. Doe - be cumulated or amassed.  Zeger's name did not appear on ballots on May 21. However, write-in votes would secure him both the Democratic and Republican nominations for the mayoral spot if he cumulates spellings of his name.
