- The election is over, but some visual reminders of the campaigns still stand.
Many local homes still have their political signs on full display in their yards. Those can stay up as long as they would like.
However, signs that are along highways or posted by the campaign offices have only 7 days to be removed before highway crews take them.
New Representative Rob Swearingen was already out collecting his signs.
"I thought it was kind of my responsibility to get them down in a swift manner. I think voters in the district are suffering election fatigue and voter fatigue and I want to just kind of clean up the signs of election for a while," says Swearingen.
Swearingen, along with the rest of the Republican Party, says they recycle the signs.
In addition to cleaning up their campaign headquarters, the local Democratic Party was also busy collecting their signs along the county highways .
Any signs taken by the highway department can be reclaimed at the county highway patrol office.
