With campaign season upon the city of Alice, candidates must remember to adhere to signage laws imposed by the state of Texas. Voters are soon to start seeing the political signs pop up around the community, but candidates placing these signs must follow certain regulations.
These laws include not placing signs on public property such as parks and street corners. Signs must instead be placed on private property with the consent of the property owner. Signs also may not be put up until 90 days prior to the election. These signs must also be made of lightweight material and be no larger than 50 square feet.
Once the election is over, signs must be removed within 10 days. Signs that are placed illegally will be removed at the sign owners expense.
Requirements for sign posting can be found at www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us.com. Candidates with questions can call the city to find out other specific information.
