The 2020 Primary Election

            The primary election is less than three weeks away and with the current Covid-19 pandemic hindering our normal voting process, it is more important than ever for candidates to take every opportunity to present themselves to the voters.

            Once again the Town and Country newspaper is inviting candidates running in the primary election on Tuesday, June 2, to email, fax or mail their information for publication in our Candidates Section to be published on May 28, 2020.

            We have mentioned many times that the first responsibility of any candidate running for office is to know what their responsibilities are, if elected.  Knowing what your job will be and what is expected from you, and communicating your qualifications and standing on issues will help voters make their decisions.

            The Town and Country's Candidates Section is for all candidates in the upcoming primary election.  In addition to a short biography that includes the candidate's name, party affiliation and position being sought, the candidate should list any prior government-related and elected positions held.

            We encourage candidates to include educational, business or other credentials and experiences that help to identify their qualifications for the position.

            Most importantly, the candidate should include a brief statement outlining why he or she is seeking the position, and present a position statement on a timely subject that affects our state, county or community.  Information submitted should be less than 300 words.  Submissions greater than 300 words may be edited.  A photo can also be included for publication.  The Town and Country provides the Candidates Section as a service to voters and there is no cost for a candidate to publish information that adheres to the guidelines.

            The deadline for receiving candidate information is noon on Wednesday, May 20.

            Letters to the editor regarding the upcoming primary election will be accepted from non-candidates until noon on May 18 for publication in the May 21 edition.

            Election-related Letters to the Editor from candidates will be accepted until noon on May 25 for publication in the May 28 edition.

            Remember, letters should be 300 words or less and all other letters to the editor rules will apply.

            The deadline for all paid election advertising is on Tuesday at noon, of any week, for publication in that Thursday's edition.  Advertisers can choose to run advertisements in any section of the newspaper.  Paid advertisements can also be run in the special Candidates Section on May 28.
