Per State Statute, political signs can be any size or number. Be sure to place signs on private property (yards) and not in the public right-of-way (boulevards). Generally, public right-of-way begins at the street and extends a few feet beyond the sidewalk. If signs are placed on a corner lot, be sure not to place them so they obscure vision. All signs may be posted 46 days before the State Primary in a State General Election year and should be removed no later than 10 days following the State General Election.
