A.M. Costa Rica will accept political ads relating to the U.S. elections or for Costa Rican elections. But such ads must be paid in advance at established rates.
The newspaper does not want to be involved in subsidizing political speech. Each ad also must contain the name of the individual or organization placing it.
The newspaper staff also will review ads for their tone. Political advertising should avoid personal attacks.
The deadline for publishing such advertising is Oct. 15 because U.S. citizens in Costa Rica need additional time to submit their absentee ballots.
