The League of Women Voters of the Montclair Area urges all registered voters to go to the polls on Tuesday, June 7, Primary Election Day, to exercise their right to vote in the primary election to select candidates for U.S. representative. This is an important election since all our U.S. Congress members are being elected. Early voting will be held June 3 through June 5.

Voters can go to or to check their registration status, find location and hours of their voting location as well as voting by mail and other election information.

Voting is your way of controlling our future including jobs, health, our security and our communities. Make sure you vote on June 7!

Montclair Local’s Opinion section is an open forum for civil discussion in which we invite readers to discuss town matters, articles published in Montclair, or previously published letters. Views expressed and published in this section are solely those of the writers, and do not represent the views of Montclair Local. 

Letters to the editor: To submit a letter to the editor, email, or mail “Letters to the Editor,” PO Box 752, Montclair, NJ, 07042 (email is preferred). Submissions must include the name, address and phone number of the writer for verification. Only the writer’s name and town of residence will be published. Montclair Local does not publish anonymous opinion pieces.

Letters must be no more than 500 words in length, and must be received by the Sunday prior to publication to be eligible for use in any Thursday print issue. Letters may be edited by Montclair Local for grammar and style. While our goal is to publish most letters we receive, Montclair Local reserves the right to decline publication of a letter for any reason, including but not limited to concerns about unproven or defamatory statements, inappropriate language, topic matter far afield of the particular interests of Montclair residents, or available space.

Town Square: Montclair Local also accepts longer-form opinion essays from residents aiming to generate discussion on topics specific to the community, under our “Town Square” banner. “Town Square” essays should be no more than 750 words in length, and topics should be submitted to at least seven days prior to publication.
