The Press encourages responses to articles and opinions. In order to provide for fair comment, The Press will have the following policy covering election letters to the editor:

No letters will be published in the issue immediately prior (May 5) to the election except for letters limited to direct rebuttal of election-related matters appearing in the April 28 paper.
