Grundy County Herald Election Policy
Election announcements are printed once for each candidate in the Grundy County Herald, free of charge, and space will be provided in the paper for these announcements.
All free announcements must run at least six weeks before the May 1, Democratic Primary. The last day to submit an election notice is March 9. This policy keeps one candidate from having an unfair advantage over another candidate. Free announcements are limited to 180 words. (This deadline is for both Republican and Democratic candidates -however, Republican candidates will not hold a primary and will go straight to the August election).
Rallies and platforms in addition to the free announcement are paid advertising. Ads must be labeled as political advertising and must be prepaid at the time of placement.
Ads determined libelous by the publisher will not be accepted for publication.
Charges made by any candidate in the last publication before the election will be submitted to other candidates so they have an opportunity to respond to allegations.
