SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — A sure sign of election season has to disappear now that the primary is over.
Signs in Eugene have to be down by Monday — five days after Election Day.
But Springfield candidates have an even shorter timeline with just three days to remove their signage.
And if there are straggling signs, Springfield has a code-enforcement office that makes sure they come down.
“It’s typically a complaint base check. So, if we get complaints about signs that are still up or signs that didn’t come down, they’ll give the campaign a call,” said Niel Laudati with the City of Springfield.
Laudati says private property owners and candidates are usually pretty good about working within the deadline.
And for those who aren’t done campaigning, they can put signs back up 90 days before the November elections.
