    If you are a candidate for office in the 2014 Illinois General Election use us. In more than 17 years of online publishing DeKalb County Online and our affiliate Kishwaukee Valley News have built a solid readership base of local residents who want to make an informed vote. Our readers are more informed than most and appreciate hearing from elected officials and candidates especially in a campaign season.

    So how can you use us?

    Yes, Virginia, some things in life are still free:

    Send us your campaign press releases and statements and we’ll publish them verbatim free of charge. Better yet send the full complete link to your RSS feed and the process is pretty much automated from that point on.

    We do have exceptions. We won’t publish offensive material that promotes sex, hate or violence. We will not allow inclusion of “bonus” scripts within RSS feeds for any purpose. We will aggressively discourage spamming or flooding.

    Comments are enabled to allow readers to ask questions or provide clarifications. We are not responsible for the content of reader comments but we do moderate and delete those that promote sex, hate or violence. We encourage candidates to respond to questions and provide clarifications when necessary.
