Political Advertising

There are often many questions regarding campaigning and campaign signs, so we’ve provided information regarding these subjects here.

For complaints or concerns about the placement of campaign signs by roads, please contact the Texas Department of Transportation.

Please also review the City of Nacogdoches Political Sign Placement Requirements.

When Early Voting is conducted at the Courthouse Annex, the Annex double glass doors are considered the entrance to the polling place. Campaign signs must be 100 feet from the entrance to the polling place. It is preferred that campaign signs are placed in the circle area around the tree in the middle of the main parking lot. Do not place signs in the grassy area directly in front of the entrance of the Extension Office. Signs may be placed in the grassy area to the left of the entrance of the Extension Office (when facing it) on the other side of the drive that runs by the entrance of the Extension Office. Do not place signs in the dividing strip of the main parking lot, in the strip of grass by the Nacogdoches County Courthouse sign on Main Street located at the entrance of the main parking lot, or in the strips of grass near the Annex entrance.
