From Sept. 1 and until the deadline of 4 p.m. on the Wednesday before the November election (Oct. 30), political letters (ones which mention any candidate or party by name, including on the signature line), are limited to 100 words maximum. Writers whose letters are printed in October are ineligible for another political letter published before Election Day.
We require that you include your address and a daytime telephone number where you may be reached for verification purposes (unless you tell us otherwise, both kept confidential). Be sure to edit your comments to 300 words so we do not need to do so. Do not mention businesses by name, please. We reserve the right to edit all letters submitted to the Record-Journal.
