[ARCHIVED] Guidelines for Temporary Election Signs

During this election season, Parker residents may want to show their support for local candidates and issues with election signage. To avoid removal of signs, please be aware of the following guidelines for temporary election signs in the Town.

The Town’s Municipal Code defines an election sign as a sign concerning candidacy for public office or urging action on any ballot issue in an election that will be posted for a temporary amount of time. Signs can be put up 60 days prior to the election and must be removed within five days after the election date.

In residential areas, the total number of signs per lot can not exceed the total number of candidates and issues that appear on the election ballot. Temporary election signs are allowed without a permit, however, the property owner must give permission to display the signs. Signs in residential areas may not exceed six square feet of sign area, must be less than eight feet in height and must be 10 feet from the street.

No signage is allowed on Town property, including, but not limited to parks, trails, open space and Town facilities. “V”-shaped signs, or signs which contain more than one face meeting in an angle with another face are strictly prohibited.

Signs may not be placed in the public right of way. The right of way includes all medians.
