Keep campaign signs legal

POSTED: July 9, 2012 7:00 a.m.

‘Tis the season when campaign signs sprout in yards faster than dandellions.
The Ellsworth County Police Department reminds residents to follow city ordinance and keep the signs out of city easements, which in most cases means the strip of grass between a street and the sidewalk.
“We would appreciate voluntary compliance,” police chief Dave Smith said.
However, if signs continue to be displayed in violation of city ordinance and authorities receive a complaint, they will investigate, Smith said.
Ellsworth County voters will go to the polls Aug. 7 to select party candidates. The only local contests involve the positions of sheriff and magistrate judge, both on the Republican side. State Sen. Jay Emler, R-Lindsborg, also has a primary challenger, Jesse Bryant of Galva.
Advance voting opens July 18 at the office of Ellsworth County election officer Jan Andrews.
