We love getting letters about the candidates and issues and we’ll continue accepting letters of up to 200 words for races in the Nov. 7 general election until noon today.
With space at a premium, the letters will have priority over longer columns.
Also, we won’t publish allegations of fact that we can’t verify. Turning the editorial pages over to those kinds of allegations just doesn’t do much for the debate.
Also, we won’t publish any letters backing a candidate on Election Day.
Just before every election, we get letters from the supporters of desperate candidates making all kinds of wild allegations against their opponents. It’s not fair to the candidates — or the voters — to raise those kinds of issues on the last day.
We’d love to publish your views on the election. But please send them soon.
We can only publish so many letters in any edition. Every year, people wait until the last minute presumably hoping to get the last word. Often that means they don’t get a say at all.
Please don’t let that happen to you.
We’ll take letters on election topics up until noon today and publish as many as possible.
