Political signs are an important part of election campaigns, but laws regarding when and where they can be placed can differ within the state, the county, and the cities. So, before you begin to put up political signs, be sure you understand the rules for all types of roadways.
Refer to Oregon Administrative Rule 734-060-0175 or call ODOT at 541-757-4211.
Under Oregon law (ORS 368.942) it is illegal to post any sign on a public right of way outside of a city. It has been the longstanding policy of Benton County to remove political signs which are placed in the public right of way. If it appears to any road supervisor or authorized public works employee to be obvious that the sign is in the public right of way, the sign will be immediately removed, returned to the County Shop, and be available for candidates or PACS to retrieve within seven (7) days after the completion of the election. After that time the signs will be destroyed.
For more information call Benton County Roads Shop at 541-766-6821.
Permitted Residential Sign Standards: One non-illuminated temporary sign not exceeding 6 square feet in area for real estate purposes, garage or personal property sales, or political advertisement.
