Photos: A Crowded Campaign Corner

Are there too many campaign signs in Elk Grove, or just enough? Tell us in the comments section.

Elk Grove drivers would be hard-pressed to not know at least some of the names in the upcoming local election. After all, they're posted all over town.

Signs advertising candidates for Congress, Assembly, Elk Grove City Council and Elk Grove Unified School District Board of Education appear on many streetcorners around the city.

The above photos were taken at the corner of Bruceville Road and Elk Grove Boulevard, where the density of campaign signs is likely as high as anywhere else in Elk Grove.

Readers, what do you think of the campaign signs that can be seen around town? Do you cheer when you pass one advertising the candidate you support, or are they an eyesore? Post your thoughts as a comment below.

In lieu of all the other saturation advertising we are bombarded with, I would vote eyesore. They will be even more of an eyesore the day after election. Whose responsibility is it to remove them, and is there a legal deadline regarding when they must be removed or face littering charges?

Littering isn't the applicable code. Signage is regulated by specific codes, but the enforcement is sometimes selective, subject to influence from the city council. Just look at the signs posted by non-profits that are technically in violation, but are never removed.
