Signs, signs, everywhere a sign

AL.com reports: It's that time of year again. The time when candidates for local, state and federal offices rush out to streets and roads to find the best yard sign locations.

Some will find hot spots in neighborhoods or business centers, once they get permission from property owners.

Other candidates, and their supporters, will put campaign yard signs in the rights-of-way that are controlled by the state of Alabama or municipal governments. Those signs will come down sooner or later, says one state official, and they will be thrown in the garbage.

Often candidates blame thieves and rivals for the removals, as Republican Dale Peterson, candidate for Alabama agriculture commissioner, famously did in 2010. -- Wrong-of-way: Yard sign laws often ignored by candidates for office | AL.com
