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 will be the second issue (April 26) before the May primary election. No letters will be published in the May 3 issue immediately prior to the (May 4) 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 factual inaccuracies without a fair chance for correction.
Letters are limited to 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.
