Political Sign Information

Candidates should be aware that the Texas Ethics Commission, the Texas Department of Transportation, and many municipalities and schools have rules and ordinances governing the placement of political signs on public property and public right-of-way.

The absence of information does not mean that a unit of government does not have rules in place. Candidates are also encouraged to be respectful of private property and ask permission from land owners before erecting any political signs. Electioneering must be allowed at polling places during voting hours, but candidates are also encouraged to limit the number and placement of signs so that they do not constitute a hazard.
