As the Tuesday, Nov. 8, election nears, EPLN wants to remind readers of its policy for printing election letters.
EPLN does not endorse candidates or run editorials during the election cycle, but we encourage letters to the editor.
People can send letters of up to 350 words that have not been published elsewhere to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the writer’s name, home address (which will not be printed) and a daytime and home phone number for verification. Writers affiliated with a specific campaign must be clearly identified.
To ensure there’s an opportunity for a response, letters about/against candidates raising questions/or challenges that need a counterpoint will not be published after Tuesday, Nov. 1.
Letter writers may be asked by the editors, before the publication of any letter, to provide additional documentation supporting statements made by the writer. If the letter writer refers to a source, that source must be properly linked or cited. We urge that individuals submit only one election-related letter (or commentary) per person per election. If more than one election-related letter is submitted, there are no guarantees that it will be published.
This policy can also be found by scrolling to the bottom of the EPLN Policies page.
We offer several ways for our readers to provide feedback. Your comments are welcome on our social media posts (Facebook, X, Instagram, Threads, and LinkedIn). We also encourage Letters to the Editor; submission guidelines can be found on our Contact Us page.
