About Political Signs

Election season is upon us—political signs on our roadways, fliers in our mailboxes, candidates on our doorsteps. Killingworth will hold a Republican primary on Tuesday, Sept. 10. The municipal general election will take place on Nov. 5. I’d like to respond to questions that have been raised about political signs.

The town doesn’t regulate the content of signs, but we do ask that political signs comply with the rules that apply to all temporary signs. Town regulations limit the size of a temporary sign to six square feet (each side of a two-sided sign counts). In putting up signs, keep in mind sightlines along roads and near driveways.

The state prohibits signs within its right-of-way along state roads. If you live on route 81, 80, or 148 and you wish to display a lawn sign, make sure it’s behind the right of way—usually about 10 feet from the edge of the road. The Connecticut Department of Transportation periodically removes signs it believes are within its right of way. If you lose a sign, you can generally retrieve it the next morning at the ConnDOT garage in Tylerville (Haddam). Take Exit 7 off Route 9 and turn left at the light onto Route 154. The garage is open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The town allows display of temporary political signs on its property to the south of Recycle Way and in front of Sheldon Park along Route 80. It’s not, however, acceptable to damage town property. This summer, some candidates chose to screw signs into the information kiosk in front of the Transfer Station. That kiosk was donated by the Killingworth Lions and built by volunteer Terry Doyle. That kind of generosity is what’s best about our town, and it deserves to be honored, not disrespected.
