Readers Poll

How do you feel about political campaign yard signs during election season?

  • They are great! I love showing support for my favorite candidates!
  • I hate them. There are too many of them, and they clutter up yards and streets.
  • I don't mind if people have them, but I don't want to put any in my yard.
  • The only signs I have in my yard say "keep off the grass."
