Are you a local politician who is looking to run for
office? If you are, you and your staff may currently be in the process
of developing your campaign, if you have yet to already do so. When it
comes your political campaign, it is important that you use
to your advantage. In fact, political signs are a vital component of a
successful election campaign.
As important as it is to know that political signs can
help your campaign for office, it is important to familiarize yourself
with them and their proper uses. Before your staff runs around town
handing out your campaign signs, there are a few important points that
you will first want to take into consideration. These points, a few of
which are outlined below, can allow you to use campaign signs to their
When relying heavily on political signs, it is important
to choose the right sign. You will find that you, literally, have an
unlimited number of options. Many politicians choose from standard
designs, while others prefer to customize. No matter which option you
choose, it is important that your signs are colorful, easy to read, and
locally unique. If your signs are unattractive in appearance,
unreadable, or too similar to other campaign signs around town, your
campaign signs may actually end up causing more harm than good.
Another important point that you will want to take into
consideration is distribution. While many of your supporters will ask
for your yard signs, you and your staff should also distribute them to
voters in or around your community. When doing so, it is important that
you keep location in mind. Ideal locations for campaign signs are busy
roadways, namely ones where the speed limit is at a low to medium speed.
You will also want to target walkers, as well as drivers, as they are
more likely to stop and thoroughly examine your signs. That is why your
political signs should be distributed to homeowners and business owners
that live near schools and parks.
The above mentioned points are just a few of the many that you will want
to take into consideration, when looking to use campaign signs to your
advantage. As a reminder, political signs can be a helpful tool, but
only if properly used. If you are not careful, your campaign signs can
cost you time and money, without the payoff of success.
Yard signs are not aimed at the party faithful but
rather the undecided swing voters who often determine elections. The
campaigns are appealing to their desire to be on the winning team. The
more signs we see for a particular candidate, the more support we assume
that candidate has.
"If I see a lot of the yard signs I think, 'Well,
someone else thinks they're doing the right thing, too,'" said a woman
in St. Paul.
There are so many yard signs along the streets these
days, I'm not sure if there is a run on the real estate market or just
run-on sentences regarding my voting options.
Everywhere I look, yards are filled with three, four and five signs. I
don't know who is running or whom these particular households support. I
try to see them from an artistic bent -- the abstract decorating
perspective -- but their design or lack thereof requires too much of my
In my neighborhood, there is one sign that has five different
candidates' photos and names. I have to study this one too hard to see
whatever it is I'm supposed to see. Try to do that while driving by and
the sign you miss is the one saying "dangerous curve ahead." How apropos
to all the misleading campaign ads.
