Signs at the polling places

In years past candidates have put a large number of signs up at the various polling places.

Will that be allowed this year with the new sign ordinance?

Great question. I assume they can't be in the right of way

I am not sure the city will touch that one. There are many polling places where they can place them and be on private property.

LP Mike Sylvester said...

Ah, but that would mean that a privately owned polling place could only allow signs from a certain candidate or political party...

They could but I have never heard of suc. I have never seen a church, school, fire station or private building tell someone they could not post signs of one party or person.

Maybe someone will so we can end up in court again.

At the primary this spring, our poling place, the VFW at Main and Leesburg Rd. took down all signs that were on their property at about 7:30 in the morning and then they posted a sign that said,"No political signs allowed". I assume that they are legal in doing this - since they own the property. John B. Kalb

John:

Yes they can decide not to allow any signs...

So I assume this year there won't be an issue of whose signs need taken down the day after the election.. and Chick-Fil-A won't be giving away any free sandwiches?

Is Bob Morris ever going to remove the thousands of stickers he has littering the city's signs?

Jeff,

Great question. Those Bob Morris stickers are everywhere. They are almost as bad as the Trinide flyers.
