Lawn Signs

As of December 2007, City Elections Rules no longer require sponsor identification on lawn signs. Sponsor ID is still required on most other forms of political advertising. See Administrative Rule 9 for more information.

Placement, size and duration of Lawn Signs is not under the jurisdiction of the SEEC. An Adobe Acrobat review of Lawn Sign Regulations in the City of Seattle can be downloaded here:

Seattle Lawn Sign Regulations

Campaign signs are treated the same as any other sign, whether a real estate sign, latte cart sign, garage sale sign, etc... Because of this the SEEC has no jurisdiction over the sign regulations and is not a good place to file complaints about violations of the City's sign ordinance. Please review the linked document above for the relevant information on filing complaints.

Thank you.
