An electronic version of the letter may be sent to the Department by email however, a hardcopy of the letter is still required to verify the signatures prior to posting on the website and listing in the Legion Link.

*Any letter that does not meet the above criteria will be returned to the Post for proper formatting and/or signatures.

Endorsement letters will be accepted for publication after September 1st for the coming year.

Only the first endorsement letter received for an individual running for an office will be posted on the Department Website. Subsequent endorsements for the same individual will be filed at the Department for future reference.
