Political Signs in the City of Seward

Campaign Signs Come with the Season

 You might see them just about anywhere in town, those placards planted in the ground along streets and in yards to increase a candidate’s name recognition among voters. 

Whether you like them or not, campaign signs are a traditional part of the political process and come with the election season. Before you place a political sign, please remember to follow the rules.

 The Seward City Code allows political signs not more than 6 square feet per sign in residential districts and 32 square feet per sign in commercial districts. Signs may be displayed no earlier than 30 days prior to any election and shall be removed within 7 days following the election. Signs erected for any primary election that remain relevant to the following general election may be maintained for the period between elections. 

 Please note that signs for the August 19, 2014 primary election may be displayed starting July 19, 2014. For the October 7, 2014 municipal and borough election, signs can be displayed starting September 7, 2014.  For the statewide general and national elections on November 4, 2014, signs can be displayed starting October 4, 2014.  

  If you have questions about the municipal sign rules, you can contact the City of Seward Community Development Department at 224-4049. For more information about state rules, contact the Alaska Public Offices Commission at (907) 276-4176.
