Candidates urged to follow rules
in posting signs
In preparation for November's election, the Washington State
Department of Transportation is reminding political candidates that it's
illegal to post campaign signs in the state highway right-of-ways.
Such signs within the state routes' right-of-ways are
considered a safety hazard and will be removed by DOT crews.
There is no permit or fee requirement for posting campaign
signs on private property adjacent to state highways, as long as the property
owner has given permission.
State law limits campaign signs to a maximum size of 32
square feet, and all signs must be removed within 10 days after the election
