Some Election Signs Continue To Litter Triangle Roadways

Posted Updated

RALEIGH, N.C. — There are elections in November, but local officials say it is time to clean up the signs from October.

There are rules, but they vary from place to place. Cary requires signs be picked up 10 days after the election. Wake County allows 15 days.

In Raleigh, a private property owner could keep political signs for up to a year, but Raleigh Mayor Meeker said private property owners are not the problem when it comes to leftover signs.

"They're put in places they shouldn't be," he said.

Raleigh is supposed to fine violators $50 for keeping up the signs past the legal time after elections. Meeker said the City Council will talk about the issue at its next meeting.
