How much does a campaign yard sign cost?

How many yard signs does a campaign need to make an impact?
Generally speaking, the more election signs you put up, the more your campaign will be more effective. However, there are still some factors you'll need to note when developing your signage strategy. The number of yard signs a campaign needs to make an impact varies depending on your campaign location and the population within that area.

If you are in a more population-dense location, putting up fewer signs that people can easily see is a good tactic, especially if you are on a budget. You can then set up more signs in lesser-populated areas so people can stop by and look at your platform.

Are there laws governing where yard signs can be placed?
There are many laws and regulations implemented for yard sign placement, and these become more stringent during campaign and election seasons. While sign laws vary from state to state, some of the common regulations involve installing signs in private areas and property, as well as the sizes and duration of the installed signs.

Election signs should have specific sizes and must contain accurate information regarding the candidate's name, their platform, call to action, and the sponsors who printed these signs. The political signs must be displayed only in authorized areas with complete permits from the property owners.

When can political yard signs be put up? When do they need to be taken down?
An important aspect of the many rules and regulations on political and campaign signs is the duration of their installation. In the case of political advertisements for a candidate, these signs can only be displayed during campaign periods and must be taken down before election day. Meanwhile, call-to-action signs that display neutral political themes (i.e., signs that encourage people to vote) can still be raised during the elections, though they must also be taken down once the election season is over.

Can yard signs be placed on public property?
Generally, yard signs cannot be placed on public property, especially without a permit from the local government. However, there are special occasions when public officials allow them, primarily during an electoral campaign period.

Even if a candidate's sponsor has acquired permission to install their signs, they must still follow strict guidelines, such as adhering to the public right-of-way, public zoning laws, and public property rules. Political signs that endorse candidates are also usually not allowed in public institutions like office buildings, schools, and roadside infrastructures to maintain politically neutral and non-coercive environments.

How can a campaign prevent yard sign theft or vandalism?
Public awareness campaigns and engagement can only do so much to prevent yard sign thefts and vandalism. However, during campaign seasons, extra penalties are usually implemented if such acts are to occur and the person responsible is caught. Sponsors and campaign teams may do the following to properly prevent campaign sign thefts and vandalism:

  • Secure Installation. Use strong harnesses and sturdy sign stakes to secure the signs firmly to the ground.
  • Strategic Placement. Once you've received your campaign permits, try placing your signs on open/visible areas and on private property.
  • Surveillance: Always keep an eye on your signs when they are set up. This not only prevents theft but could also help with sign maintenance.
  • Extra Signs: Saving for extra signs to replace stolen or damaged yard signs won't hurt your campaign. You can also replace worn-out signs to keep your campaign awareness fresh.

Can yard signs influence local discussions and engagement?
The primary purpose of a political yard sign is to promote the candidate and increase their visibility and name recognition in time for elections. That said, there can be instances where a well-maintained sign can spark meaningful discussions, especially about the candidate's platform and policies.

Campaign teams and sponsors can create yard signs to start conversations and discourse about a candidate's stance and perspectives on specific political issues. However, there should also be disclaimers and clear messaging about the platform so the conversation doesn't become too confrontational and aggressive.

How large should a political yard sign be?
The size of a political yard sign can vary depending on the placement location and regulations. All political yard signs usually have specific size limitations during campaign seasons to promote fairness and neutrality in promotions, with the maximum size bordering on the 24" x 36" or 24" x 48" depending on the state or city.

Aside from campaign parity, the yard sign sizes are implemented so that it wouldn't affect people's right of way and movement in public areas.

What should a campaign do if their yard signs are being vandalized or stolen?
People are typically fined and penalized when they are found to have vandalized or stolen yard signs, which are considered property. During election season, these punishments become more severe when done on election and campaign yard signs since these can be seen as political sabotage or defamation. When you find your political signs vandalized or stolen, you must stay calm and do the following:
  1. Document the damage. Take photos and videos of the damaged signs to be used as evidence. You can also take a picture of your previously installed sign and timestamp it to ensure it's not just misplaced.
  2. Report to the authorities. Immediately report the theft or vandalism to the police and request they investigate the incident. You can also use the documentation as evidence to support your claims.
  3. Try to stay positive. Do not show aggression before, during, and after the investigation since your actions may also reflect on the candidate you support. It's also best not to jump to conclusions about the perpetrators and trust the authorities to do their job.
  4. Keep extra signs for replacement. It's also good to keep spare signs that you can install to replace the damaged or missing ones. Still, you should ask permission to add these extra signs since a new sign might disrupt the investigation.

Are yard signs a good way to gauge voter support in an area?
Yard signs can provide insights into voter support in an area, but they should be used cautiously to gauge overall voter sentiment. While these signs primarily support a candidate during the elections, these would also elicit some dissenting opinions. You should properly gauge the interactions brought about by these signs and encourage discourse in a civil and non-aggressive manner. You can also design political signs to clearly state the candidate's platform and beliefs, preventing people from misinterpreting them.
