Reminder on election letters to editor

Just a quick reminder: After this issue you have just four weeks to write letters prior to the Nov. 3 elections.

In that time you can discuss issues related to open seats on city councils and cemetery districts, and other measures to be decided. Among the campaign literature and signs, and visits by candidates to speak to public groups, your neighbors decide how to cast their votes by the discussion within a newspaper letters to the editor page.

Your voice carries weight.

Just as a reminder, our letters policy is 350 words or less; less is better so our advice is concentrate on one point and write concise. Write early as absentee voting starts Oct. 5; don’t wait. The letters page is for voter discussion; candidates can make their points in election news coverage or advertising. And as always, letters may be edited for length or issues involving libel, personal attacks or poor taste.

Mail letters, send them by e-mail or drop them off at our office.
