The Press encourages responses to articles and opinions published in its pages. 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 (July 27) before the special election. No letters will be published in the Aug. 3 issue immediately prior to the (Aug. 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. Letters should be addressed to The Editor, c/o The Press, Box 169, Millbury, OH 43447 or e-mailed to email@example.com.
