Poster Free Elections

Poster Free Elections

For all elections that all canditates may only put one poster in an area to be designated in an electoral area. Ie Town Hall,Community Centre and for this to become law.

Why is this important?

Most of us will agree that it is not in any way going to make us choose a candidate based on a picture . Big parties have big budgets and can take over an area. They are unsightly and create an untidy look wherever they are.

A person's ability to run for election should not be counted by the amount of times their face is replicated.


Reasons for signing

  • Several Co. Wicklow towns seem to have successfully implemented this for GE 2016 with candidates agreeing with the town authorities not to put up posters.
  • It is a bit of a waste sticking up thousands of posters!
