Political sign rules

October 11, 2010

Political signs accumulate in yards and city streets as election day nears. Some of those signs, however, could be illegal.
Illegal campaign sign placement is a violation of littering laws, said Larry Brewer Catawba County Board of Elections director. The Board of Elections, however, does not have the authority to enforce the laws.
"We don't control signs," Brewer said. "We're not the sign police, so to speak."
Littering law violations on public rights-of-way are enforced by the North Carolina Department of Transportation.
