The Bangor Daily News welcomes commentary from readers. Letters should be no more than 250 words, OpEd commentary should not exceed 650 words. Both may be edited or rejected for clarity, taste, libel and space. If a letter or OpEd is published, submissions by the same writer may not be considered for 60 days. We apologize for being unable to respond to queries.

🗳️ 🇺🇸 Election notice: The BDN will stop accepting letters and OpEds related to the July 14 election on July 7. Not all submissions can be published.

If you’d rather email than fill out a form, send letters to the editor to letters@bangordailynews.com and opinion columns to OpEd@bangordailynews.com. Word limits still apply.

First, please tell us who you are and how we can reach you.

We may use this to inform how we identify you if we publish an OpEd that you submit.
