Comment guidelines for upcoming vote

With Election Day a little more than three weeks away, it is time for our annual reminder to readers regarding the candidates on our Opinions page.

We will publish letters endorsing candidates and discussing issues. Our deadline for election letters is Oct. 31 and the final day letters regarding the election will be published will be Sunday, Nov. 3.

We will be endorsing candidates in Chautauqua County races. The endorsements are based on the candidates’ platform and their voting record or, for new candidates, their record of service in the past.

Endorsements of a member of office who maintains the same political party are not used.

Readers with questions can call 366-3000, ext. 401 for more information. Election day is Nov. 5.
