Elections are over and the signs must go

By  | 

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) - Now that elections are over, Twin Falls residents have a certain amount of time to get rid of those campaign signs on their lawn.

Code Enforcement Coordinator Sean Standley said political signs must be taken down two days after Election Day.

Normally signage can go up 60 days before the election, but need to be at least 10 feet away from the street pavement, he said.

He said code enforcers don't typically go looking for the signs, but if workers see it as they drive around, they will be impounded.

"There's no fine. Typically we do reach out to them and make them aware that we do have them. If they choose not to pick them up and they want them back, there is a $25 impound fee that they need to get them back," Standley said.

He said most of the time, candidates do a good job in taking the signs down.
