Submission policy


The Union Democrat welcomes letters for publication on any subject as long as they are tasteful and responsible and are signed with the full name of the writer (including a phone number and address, for verification purposes only).

Letters should not exceed 300 words.

A maximum of one letter per writer can be published every two weeks.

The newspaper reserves the right to edit for brevity, clarity, taste and style. Please, no business thank-yous, business endorsements or poetry. We will not publish consumer complaints against businesses or personal attacks.

Letters may be emailed to letters@uniondemocrat.com; mailed to 84 S. Washington St., Sonora 95370; faxed to 209-532-6451; or delivered in person.
