Congratulations on the primary election! Now remove your campaign signs in Burlington

Consider this a kind warning if you set up any campaign signs this election season: Remove them ASAP. 

Voting ended Tuesday for the state’s primary elections. The Free Press provided guidelines a few weeks ago on sticking campaign signs around the city after someone lodged a complaint on Burlington’s SeeClickFix website about the placement of one such emblem.

The commotion of the primary election has settled, but you need to keep the momentum going if your signage is still posted around town.

A driver runs a gauntlet of campaign signs at the entrance to Frederick H. Tuttle Middle School and South Burlington High School in South Burlington on Tuesday, Aug. 11, 2020. Voters in South Burlington cast ballots in the statewide primary and the city's school budget.

Burlington provides guidelines around signs. Such displays for political candidates and parties fall into a list of exemptions for the article, as long as they adhere to specific practices.

One rule is that the signs must be removed within three days after the election. So it’s time to sweep up any signage you put up for your favorite politician until the next big vote.
