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 Aug. 7 special election will be the second issue (July 30) before the election. No letters will be published in the issue immediately prior (Aug. 6) 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 issues. The Press does not print letters about candidates’ races.
