You will need to contact the corresponding political office for removal of political signs. Political Signs are exempt from requiring a permit or being in violation if they meet the following guidelines:
- Have an area of thirty-two (32) square feet or less
- Be at least two (2) feet inside of private property lines
- Not be installed on City of San Antonio owned property
- Must be staked to the ground or securely affixed to a structure or fence
- May be installed on private property but must have property owner’s approval prior to sign installation
Political Signs are considered to be Temporary Signs and are limited to ninety (90) consecutive days only. Signs installed shall not create a hazardous situation. It is illegal to place any signs on or within the right of way. This includes posting signs on trees, telephone poles, traffic signs and other objects on the right of way.
Campaign signs along Texas roads can be placed on private property with the owner's permission. Signs must be made of lightweight material and be no larger than 50 square feet. Campaign signs may be posted as early as 90 days before an election (no earlier) and must be removed within 10 days after the election. If you've placed your sign in the right of way or it's posing a traffic hazard, TX DOT will remove it without prior notice. All costs associated with sign removal will be paid by the sign owner.
Any individual, corporation or association who posts illegal signage will be in violation of the City Sign Code. If you have any questions regarding Political Signage, please contact the Sign Inspector at (210) 207-0158.
