-Submit letters and Guest Commentaries before Tuesday, March 13 to guarantee they will be published before Election Day.
-No election-related letters, commentaries or political advertisements will run in the Enterprise the day before or the day of the election, with one exception: Rebuttals to prior articles may be published on the day before the election, if deemed necessary.
-Letters and commentaries from candidates will not be published. Candidates are encouraged to contact advertising representative Susan Moore at 891-2600 ext. 19 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
-Form letters will not be published.
-Guest Commentaries must rise to a level of compelling writing and issue-based content to warrant being published in longer form, as determined by the managing editor.
