Deadline tonight for election letters
The Times News is accepting election-related letters in support of candidates through midnight today.
Letters will be published in our daily and Saturday opinion pages by Saturday, May 15.
We invite you to write in and tell us why you are supporting a candidate. We will now also accept opposition letters. Be respectful, kind and courteous. Focus on the candidate as an official, not on their personal life. When writing about an incumbent, stick strictly to the candidate’s role or performance in office, not their personal life. Stick to substantive arguments.
We will not tolerate letters that make false declarations or ones that attack other letter writers.
Letters should be no more than 300 words and be signed by the author. The writer’s name, address and phone number should be included for our files.
If the letter writer is working for a candidate’s campaign, we ask that they disclose that so we can include that information on the letter.
Submit your letters via email on our website at https://www.tnonline.com/customerservice/contactus/submit-letter or mail to Times News, 594 Blakeslee Blvd. Drive W., Lehighton, PA 18235. We reserve the right to reject any letter that is libelous or does not fit with our format. We are under no obligation to print letters received. Questions? Email email@example.com.
Be sure to include your phone number so we can confirm the letter.
