The Lake County Leader accepts letters to the editor, please keep in mind the following points when submitting letters:
Shorter letters are the best read. If we have to choose between one long screed or five short letters, we'll run the five.
We won't run unsigned letters, letters that are in poor taste, letters that are potentially libelous, non-local letters, or letters that attack a local business. If we can't verify a letter, we won't run it. If you send us profanity, we'll either round-file your letter or change your language to fit a family newspaper. And all letters run on a space-available basis with no date guaranteed.
Maximum of one letter per writer per calendar month. Please note we are not guaranteeing a monthly letter from anyone. We're simply saying there can be only one letter, per month, per writer. No more, maybe less.
Regarding political letters:
No letters to the editor from candidates, members of their immediate family, or from their campaign staffs. Those are paid political ads.
Please refrain from submitting half a dozen letters of support for a candidate on the day before the election. We won't run them. Send them a couple of weeks earlier and there's no issue. We will not run letters criticizing a candidate within a week of the voting, because the person attacked doesn't have a fair chance for response.
