Friday is the deadline for supporters and opponents of the amendments and propositions on the ballot in Denton County to submit a paid endorsement letter before Tuesday’s elections.
As the number of endorsement letters received by the Denton Record-Chronicle has continued to grow, we again have moved these endorsements off the Opinion page and are considering them paid ads. Under this policy, all election-related letters to the editor advocating for or against a ballot measure will be subject to a charge of $25 for up to 250 words. No endorsement letters over 250 words will be accepted.
Paid endorsement letters will be accepted until the close of business Friday and should explain why a particular ballot measure should be approved or rejected. For consideration, all letters must be original and include the writer’s name, address and telephone number for verification. All submissions may be edited for clarity, taste and libel.
All remaining paid letters will publish on Saturday and will appear adjacent to the Opinion page. All paid letters will be identified as such.
Paid endorsement letters may be submitted via a form found online at www.dentonrc.com/opinion.
