Letters to the Editor

Capitol Broadcasting Company's Opinion Section seeks a broad range of comments and letters to the editor. Our comments, as they appear with each opinion item, offers the opportunity to engage in a dialogue about the article. In addition, we invite you to write a letter to the editor about any opinions you may read here.

  • Letters should be in response to a particular opinion article or issue. We do not publish mass submission or open letters.

  • Letters should be about 200 to 250 words (President Lincoln’s 1863 Gettysburg Address was 272 words), and note the specific article or issue being referenced.

  • All letters MUST include the writer’s name, address and telephone number. Contact information is for verification purposes only.

  • Writers of letters designated to be published will be contacted within a week.

  • All letters may be edited for civility, clarity, accuracy and style. All letters selected for publication will be sent to the writers after editing and prior to publication.
  • NOTE: If you are using spam blocking software like EarthLink's spamBlocker, be sure to add all addresses at wral.com to your allowed sender list before you fill out this form.
