New Era won't say

NewsLanc has twice inquired of Ernest Schreiber, Editor of the Lancaster New Era, as to whether he intends to continue to publish morning exit poll results in his election day afternoon edition.

The League of Women Voters is critical of such practices and national and state exit polls are embargoed until after polls close. This is to prevent early reports from discouraging voter turn out and influencing how people vote.

NewsLanc has received no response.
