    I am more likely to not vote for someone with a ridiculous number of signs or signs that are particularly annoying

    So signs could drive your decision rather than what the candidate's position on the issues is? You do realize that usually it isn't the candidate putting out the signs but a supportive electorate.

    I agree that they are annoying but to base your vote on how many signs there are is a bit off.
    Being a left-handed conservative is tough. When somebody calls me a lefty I want to punch them.

    not at all! more than likely I'm driving by and only read signs when I'm trying to see if there's anything I would be interested in going on in the county. They are annoying along with the calls, texts and house visits.
    the ultimate driving machine

    Why do you hate crummy lollipop sign makers? They gotta eat too.
    War = Peace
    Freedom = Slavery
    Diversity = Strength

    Monello thinks he is king of the forum, now. Just keep that in mind.

    No. They never have influenced my vote. I am not sure why the politicians think the signs help.
