From the Ask Joe file, it is campaign season and one of our viewers has a question about that.
Bill in Reno wants to know if there is a rule limiting how early candidates can post their campaign signs before the election?
There are quite a few signs up already. We spotted some over on Longley Lane. Judge Weller has a sign there, and so does Nevada Assembly candidate Randy Kirner.
I don't think there are any rules against this. It depends on the jurisdiction. But Washoe County says the signs can go up anytime, and John Kadlic the Reno City Attorney says he does not know of any restrictions.
NDOT, the Nevada Department of Transporation does have some limits. You are not allowed to post signs right along the highway. On NDOT or private land near the highway, you cannot put up signs until you are within 60 days of the election.
Also, in Sparks, candidates are not allowed to post signs until filing begins, and then following state law, they must come down ten days after the election. So again, it all depends on where you are.
But in most areas, there are no restrictions when it comes to putting up signs before the election.
