Why three? The early one is to reach the many voters who will cast their absentee ballots right away. The October printing will serve as a reminder or perhaps reach readers who simply overlooked the first publication. It will also be helpful for Early Voting at the Elections Office. And the Nov. 1 edition? That’s for the folks who will head to the polls and need a brisk refresher.
Publishing three times also allows the Press to make changes or updates as needed.
