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:
The last issue for letters regarding the Nov. 5, 2013 election will be the second issue (Oct. 28) before the election. No letters will be published in the issue immediately prior (Nov. 4) to the election except for letters limited to direct rebuttal of election-related issues appearing in the second to last issue
No new political information can be introduced in the issue immediately before the election. This is to prevent inaccuracies without a fair chance for correction.
Letters are limited to ballot issues. The Press does not print letters about candidates’ races.
Letters should be no more than 300 words and include a phone number and address for verification purposes. No anonymous letters will be printed. The deadline is Wednesday, Noon. Send to The Editor, c/o The Press, Box 169, Millbury, OH 43447 or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
