Posting Political Signs Regulations for New Britain Borough

It is that time of year, Election Season!

Political Campaign Signs… Know your Rights!


Many residents choose to display their support for a candidate or party by placing political campaign signs on their lawn. Most signs require zoning permits, however one of the exceptions to zoning permits are political campaign signs. When displaying your political campaign signs this fall, please be sure to keep in mind the Zoning Ordinance regulations:

  • Political campaign signs cannot exceed four (4) square feet in area. 
  • Political campaign signs shall be displayed by the owner of the property, or by the party or candidate with permission from the property owner. If someone places a sign on your property without your permission, you have the right to remove the sign.
  • Political campaign signs cannot be displayed more than 30 days prior to the election and 20 days following the election.

                        This year, political signs can only be displayed October 9, 2022 through November 28, 2022.

  • Political campaign signs shall not be located in a position to limit sight distances along any roadway or driveway. This ensures the safety of all residents and visitors of the Borough.


And remember, don’t forget to vote on Tuesday, November 8th!
