Residents May Now Begin Displaying Election Signage

Citizens may now begin displaying signs promoting their favorite candidate for public office. Now through Election Day, which is November 3, 2020, residents can expect to see campaign signs adorning Roseburg, a hallmark of the election process.

Although displaying campaign signs is a fun, patriotic way of showing support for candidates, citizens are reminded that posting these signs must comply with Oregon State law (ORS 377.720) and the Roseburg Municipal Code. For example, signs should be no more than 32 square feet, and the entire campaign message must be contained on one sign. Additionally, campaign signs are not to be placed on sidewalks or any other public right-of-way.

Posting campaign signs on private property is allowed, but only if the property owner gives permission.

Campaign signs are not allowed on or within the following:

  • Public parks.
  • Utility poles.
  • Bridges or other scenic areas.
  • On fences, trees or other publicly posted signs.
  • Within a public right-of-way, such as a sidewalk.

Signs that are found to be in violation of the Roseburg Municipal Code will be removed and stored at the Public Works Shop, which is located at 425 NE Fulton St. Signs will be held for 10 days, after which they will be disposed if not collected by the owner. If a resident or candidate believes that one of their signs is being held by the City, please contact the Public Works Department as soon as possible at 541-492-6730 or pwd@cityofroseburg.org.

All campaign signs must be removed by November 6, 2020, three days following Election Day.

For more information about the City election process, please contact the City Recorder, Amy Sowa, at asowa@cityofroseburg.org or call 541-492-6866.
