Editor's Note: Thursday, Aug. 9, is last day to submit primary election endorsement letters


The deadline to submit a political endorsement letter for the Aug. 14 primary will be 5 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 9.

The last day endorsement letters will be published will be Sunday, Aug. 12. The Dispatch doesn't accept requests for endorsement publication on a specific date. Letters are published as they are received, as space allows.

Letters must be 150 words or less, and letter writers will be allowed only one endorsement per candidate. An endorsement letter written for a primary candidate will count toward the one-letter-per-candidate limit, including for the Nov. 6 general election

Letters may be emailed to readeropinion@brainerddispatch.com or mailed to the Brainerd Dispatch, 506 James St., Brainerd, MN, 56401.
