Political Election Signage
Posted on May 14th, 2020
Texas law prohibits political signs from going up prior to 90 days before the election -- and the signs must come down within 10 days after the election. Posting signs on private property requires the owner's permission. In Texas, you can't place a political sign in a public right-of-way, or on any publicly owned property. You are prohibited from posting signs on telephone poles, trees and any other raised areas in a right-of-way. The Texas Department of Transportation will remove such signs on any of the roads in its jurisdiction, but the person who put up the signs is responsible for the cost of removal.
