Letters to the Editor

Newspaper.jpg

To make your voice heard about candidates and issues, please consider writing a letter to the editor and submitting it to your local newspaper.

Keep in mind that local newspapers want letters from residents in their coverage area, so make sure to submit your letter to a newspaper that serves your city or county. Use the online forms or email addresses linked below to submit your letter. If no word count is specified, limit your letter to 200 words. When sending to an email address, please write "Letter to the Editor" in the subject line, and sign the email with your full name, mailing address, and telephone number so the editor can verify your identity and contact you if necessary. Only your name and city will be printed in the newspaper if your letter is published.
