Heights Observer policy on election-related content
The Heights Observer will review election-related submissions with a goal of providing fair and equitable access for those seeking office, or taking sides on a ballot issue.
Candidates for office are expected to identify themselves as such when submitting anything for publication.
Candidates' supporters and campaign representatives, and anyone writing about any candidate or election issue, are expected to disclose any personal or professional relationship they may have with any candidate, or with the subject about which they have written. These disclosures are intended to inform Heights Observer review, and will be disclosed to readers when relevant.
The Heights Observer will determine whether and when submissions will run in print, online, or both.
Contributions by and about candidates, and any election issue, are limited to a maximum of 400 words.
The Heights Observer does not endorse candidates, nor does FutureHeights, the nonprofit community-development corporation that publishes the Heights Observer.
