Signs of the Political Times

Political signs seem to magically multiply on voting day. Some appear for races in which voters at the location can't even participate.

Do the signs influence voters at the eleventh hour?

"It doesn't influence me," said Starr Griffin. "I've already made up my mind before I got here."

"I don't think they ought to be out there, but it's a free country," said Ron Russell.

"Most of them have but you might have 10% or 5% who haven't decided when they come in and you have a chance for them to get one final look," said a man who identified himself as a brother of a candidate. "And it might put something into their mind when they get to the voting machine and pull that lever."

By law, all campaign signs must be at least 150 feet away from polling places.
