The Journal will accept letter to the editor relating to the Nov. 6 elections up to Friday, Nov. 2. Letters endorsing candidates and issues will not be published after Sunday, Nov. 4, unless the editor determines a response to a previously published letter is in order. Please keep letters brief, so all can have their say. All letters must be signed, and address and telephone number are required for verification purposes. We will not publish letters without the names of the authors. The Journal reserves the right to edit or reject letters for length and abusive language.
