Your Signs Are Still Waiting to Be Removed

To all of those candidates for office on the November 2nd ballot - if you haven't done so already, please get your signs out of the rights of way. They were placed there illegally by your campaigns before the election. Please do not make taxpayers pay to have your refuse removed.

Thank you.

What are the laws governing the placement of yard signs and how long they can be there?

The law prohibits signs in rights of way. (Unless it's a Ballard sign promoting "Driving Safely.") It's a law that is uniformally ignored by virtually every candidate Really the law should be changed to alllow the signs for awhile then require them down by a certain date with fine.

If you'are a county wide candidate though it may simply be that you don't know where all your signs are. These signs have never bothered me. They are the signs of a healthy democracy and a good thing.
