Letters deadline for May 18 elections
The Observer does not run endorsements of more than 400 words.
The Observer will institute a deadline for letters to the editor, so we can be fair with all the letters we receive and allow for responses before Election Day, if necessary.
We run local letters of endorsement on a first-come, first-served basis.
Please submit your endorsement letters to the editor by 5 p.m. Friday, May 7.
You can email them to firstname.lastname@example.org, or mail them to The Observer, c/o Phil Wright, 911 Jefferson Ave., La Grande OR 97850.
We will publish our last letters on Saturday, May 15. Any letters received after the deadline will not run.
Election Day is May 18.
