Decrying a “carnival”-like aesthetic at polling places, the Hamilton County Commission has passed an ordinance limiting the number of campaign signs candidates can post.

The measure, effective immediately, limits the signs to two per candidate at early voting sites and one at precincts on election day.

“It looks like a carnival at the polling sites,“ Commissioner Christine Altman said in a prepared statement. “Some candidates are placing four, five or more signs at a single location. Multiple that by the number of candidates, and the problem is clear.”

The ordinance also restricts the size of the signs to 2-by-3 feet, and they cannot be placed with metal or wood posts, but rather with wire stakes.

Big spending:$53.5M in bonds for future developments are before Carmel Council. Here are the projects.
