    Today is the deadline to submit letters to the editor to the Herald-Leader in support of specific candidates and *might* also be considered the deadline to submit other letters pointed at the election, such at talking about New Power or non-partisan letters focusing on the election. 

    Letters of support can be no more than 150 words and must be received by 5pm today.  You can email Letter to the Editor at: or use their convenient online form at

    The rest of this blog entry has some broad advice about writing letters to the editor for the Herald or other papers.  Write one today!

    Writing a letter to the editor is a simple and easy way to reach thousands of Kentuckians and help to educate, organize, and build awareness around the issues that we care about.  Even very short letters can be powerful.

   Letters to the editor are a free, effective way to let decision-makers and the community at-large know how you feel about important issues and candidates.


   Your letter to the editor should be:
- Brief (250 words or fewer, depending on the paper), easy to read, and to the point.  Some of the best letters are just a couple of sentences long.
- Focused on one issue, and maybe even one angle of a particular issue.
- Supported by key facts.
- Personal. Describe how you are affected or why you care about this issue.
- A call to action. What do you want decision-makers and members of the public to do?
