Frequently asked questions:

What’s the deadline for submitting an ad?

We encourage you to schedule your ad at least seven days in advance of publication. While the daily newspapers can operate on two or three days notice, the weekly newspapers often require seven days.

Can you bill us for political advertising?

All political advertising must be paid in advance. You may schedule an ad, but payment must be received before it will appear in the newspapers.

What format should it be in?

Your ad should be submitted electronically in a PDF format by e-mail to nevadapress2@att.net.

Ad space is also available on our newspapers’ web sites.

What are the sizes?

We offer full–page display ads. Because page sizes vary from newspaper to newspaper, your ad will be adjusted to fit each paper’s needs. A common size for a full-page ad is 11.5 inches wide by 21 inches deep. Remember that some newspapers are broadsheets and some are tabloids, so there may be a significant difference in the actual size of the published ad.

Are there legal requirements?

• All political advertising must clearly identify the person, organization or committee paying for the ad. No abbreviations.
• Ads from individuals or special-interest groups not associated with a campaign must carry the statement “not authorized by any candidate or candidate’s agent or committee.”
• Anyone placing an ad that contains names of other persons who endorse a candidate or referendum must sign the “certificate of authority” verifying their authenticity and permission.
