Cleaning Up Campaign Signs and Banners at Polling Stations?

“Dear PoPville,

Can you please ask if people are having issues with leftover campaign posters and banners at their neighborhood polling stations. On 14th Street and Clifton Street in front of the Boys and Girls Club (which is used as a polling station) there must be 90 to 100 campaign signs stuck in the tree boxes along with banners and signs littering the street. I thought the City required campaigns to remove those things within a set amount of time but they are still there.”

and another reader asks:

“The scene by the Boys and Girls Club on 14th which was a voting station is completely littered with leaflets and loads of candidates’ signs. I understand the election was only Tuesday, but are these staffers going to come back and clean this mess up? Who’s responsible for the cleanup?”

Any other particularly bad areas?

DCBOEE says:

“A sign, advertisement, or poster related to a specific event may be affixed any time prior to the event but shall be removed no later than thirty (30) days following the event to which it is related.”
