With less than a month before the Ohio primaries, election signs are popping up across the Valley. If you plan to place some in your yard, there are some rules you should know about.
Rules about political signs vary depending on where you live. If you do plan to put one in your yard, check with your local municipality.
In Boardman, signs in residential areas should be six square feet or less and only one sign per lot is allowed.
No signs are allowed on public property.
“Especially like the road right of ways, where we see people try to put signs right along 224,” said. “You couldn’t do that. No utility poles, even on private property. It can’t block visibility for drivers or anything like that, too.”
Political signs can’t be put up earlier than 30 days before the election and must be removed within five days after the election.
