All absentee ballot locations will have extended hours for absentee voting for the upcoming general election from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, November 5 and until 5 p.m. on Monday, November 7.


Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "Pineandlakes Echo Journal." Often, the "Pineandlakes Echo Journal" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
