Before displaying signs or distributing handbills for an upcoming election, review the
City’s regulations regarding signs. Political signs are considered
“temporary signs” in the Salem Sign Code. Such signs must meet the standards specified in
Salem Revised Code Chapter 900.
Obtain permission from the property owner or resident prior to placing political advertisement signs on private property.
Adhering to the sign code will make your campaign more effective, lessen criticism of your signs, and maintain the neat and attractive appearance of our community. For more information about the sign code, contact
