Election Signs: Understanding Proper Usage

In addition to signs that are allowed during the rest of the year, temporary election signs and other non-commercial signs are allowed during election seasons. These additional temporary signs are regulated by the city’s zoning ordinance to ensure pedestrian and vehicular safety are not hindered due to sign placement. 

Regulations include:
  • Signs are not permitted within the public right-of-way. The right-of-way is typically ten feet back from the curb.
  • If a sidewalk is present, the placement of signs should be inside of the property (signs should not be placed between the sidewalk and roadway).
  • Signs may be posted starting 45 days before the election.
  • Signs must be removed no later than 10 days after the election.
  • Signs are only permitted with the property owner’s permission.
  • Signs may be single- or double-faced, but no sign face may exceed six square feet on residential property or 12 square feet on commercial property.
  • The number of additional signs per lot may not exceed the number of candidates or propositions on the ballot. 
  • Signs may not be attached to utility poles.
  • When placing an election sign, do not block access or visibility of pedestrian or vehicular traffic. 
If you have questions about signs, contact Whitney Kelly, City Planner, at or (314) 442-2087.
