Reality Check: Campaign signs are showing up in Asheville, but are they legal?
ASHEVILLE, N.C. (WLOS) —
Residents may already be seeing campaign signs around town, but in some cases, those signs could be in violation of Asheville's city sign ordinance.
Within Asheville city limits, campaign signs are prohibited until 30 days before the start of early voting. However, that limit doesn't apply to signs posted on private property with the land owner's permission.
Also, the signage must be at least three feet from the roadway and must not obscure the view of drivers at intersections.
According to the City of Asheville, political signs are generally limited to 8-square-feet in area per display face and must be removed within 5 days after the election.
