Leftover political signs still line area streets

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - Elections are over, but political signs still line the streets.
But by this time next week, those signs could be against the law.

Regulations keep tabs on how big signs can be and where they can go up, but those regulations change depending on where you live. And the time-table for when the signs must come down also changes from town to town.
State law says signs near highways must be removed 10 days after the election. Local laws get even more specific.
In most cities across the east, the signs should be gone 7 to 10 days after the election.  
So if you're a campaign volunteer or candidate, contact your city office to find out your town's sign expiration date.
