Let the Voters Know

            Let the votes know who you are and what you stand for.

            Tuesday, November 2nd is General Election Day.  Whether you vote by mail or in person on thing is important – Vote.  If you are a registered voter it is your right; exercise it.

            While not the gangbuster election of 2020 that brought out voters in numbers rarely seen, every election counts. State and County judges will be elected along with municipal officials.

            Candidate removals from the May Primary ballot along with several write-in campaigns make voter awareness a must.  There's nothing like casting your ballot for someone who dropped out too late to have their name removed from the ballot and finding out after the fact.

            The Town and Country newspaper is once again inviting candidates running in the general election on Tuesday, November 2, to email, fax or mail their information for publication in our Candidates Section to be published on October 28, 2021.

            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 350 words.  Submissions greater than 350 words may be edited.  A photo of the candidate 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 Friday, October 22.

            Letters to the editor regarding the upcoming general election will be accepted from non-candidates until noon on October 19 for publication in the October 21 edition.

            Election-related Letters to the Editor from candidates will be accepted until noon on October 26 for publication in the October 28 edition.

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

            Information can be emailed to

            The deadline for election-related advertising is Monday at noon for publication in that Thursday's edition.

            The Town and Country offers the Voters Guide as a free opportunity for candidates to present themselves to our readers and provides a source for those readers to help them make their voting decisions.

            Vote – Too many people gave so much to give and preserve that right.
