Understanding Political Sign Etiquette for the 2024 Election Season
With the election season upon us, political and campaign signs are starting to appear on public and private properties. While these signs are permitted beginning in May, it’s essential to follow Arizona Revised Statute regulations regarding their placement. Here are some key guidelines to ensure proper sign etiquette:

Permission for Placement: Political signs do not require a city permit. However, if placed on private property, the sign owner must have the property owner’s permission.

Sign Specifications: Political signs can be freestanding, single, or double-sided. They may be positioned either perpendicular or parallel to the street.
Installation and Removal: Political signs can be installed up to 90 days before Primary Election Day and must be removed within 15 days after the General Election Day. Candidates who do not advance to the General Election must remove their signs within 15 days after the Primary Election Day.

Utility Safety: Before digging to install signs, contact Arizona 811. State law mandates that anyone excavating on public or private property must determine if underground utilities are present.

Adhering to these guidelines not only demonstrates good neighborly behavior but also ensures compliance with state regulations. Using proper sign etiquette can contribute to a respectful and orderly election season.
