Do they influence your vote in any way? Like, you see a sign for a candidate and go, "Wow, nice sign. I think I'll vote for that guy"?
I rode by a bunch of R candidates standing at the fair grounds entrance on 231, all with their signs bunched together and waving at traffic..there was no way to read all the signs to even know who was waving..Wrote the Calvert R folks and said they should have spaced them out so there was 'some' name recognition but never heard back. Maybe some folks vote for a person because they saw a sign, but I think it's overdone and kinda dumb in this day and age.
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 am more likely to not vote for someone with a ridiculous number of signs or signs that are particularly annoying
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.
