Have you noticed how many yard signs dot your daily drive? Since it is election season, you may see an abundance depending upon where you are. Most local municipalities have restrictions on where they can be placed.

For the most part, you are not allowed to place signs on public property, or on private property if it falls in a right-of-way. Alton Public Works Director Bob Barnhart tells The Big Z this is an issue they deal with during most election cycles.

He says they will not move signs but will remove them. Those signs are gathered up and taken to their facility if the owner wants to retrieve them. After the election, and signs that remain will be destroyed. Other local municipalities have similar rules and policies.
