Write a Letter to the Editor
Tips for Writing Letters to the Editor
  • Be brief and focus on one issue. Most newspapers reserve the right to edit letters that are too long.
  • Get personal.  Relay personal experiences or stories to add a unique, individual touch to your interest in full representation.
  • If possible, refer to local events or recent articles that have appeared in the newspaper. Include the date and title of any relevant article or editorial.
  • Ask readers to contact their legislators about the issue.
  • Give your address and phone number. Most newspapers verify authorship before they print a letter.

Below you will find the email addresses for major state daily newspapers.  Upon completing your letter to the editor, you can submit your letter by clicking on the name of the newspaper.

If your letter-to-the-editor is published, please let us know by emailing info@fairvote.org

We also suggest clipping your published letter-to-the-editor and mailing or faxing it to relevant legislators.
