The day after! I can re stock my supply target backing board. Those corrugated plastic posterboard signs are great for target backers.


AND buttload of free T-posts that hold them up to replace old cedar fenceposts. But you need a gorilla to pull many of them up. Fortunately I'm built like a gorilla

Love the signature line!

This election day, i dragged my daughter to 3 different gun stores, and we talked about hunting, HD/SD guns, what would be a good first purchase for when she moves out of the house... and then I took her to vote in her very first election. (totally unrelated- no agenda on the old man's part, no sir.):D
My little girl is growing up to be a citizen!

Been using them for a while myself. Helps the candidates clean up afterward.

I have never thought about using those. I would really doubt it, but is there any legal issues with rounding them up?

Since the parties are expected to clean up their mess (signs), I bet they could care less if people pick them up, and what they do with them. Folks have been using them like this for years. I have never heard of an issue with it.

As long as you pick up the signs the day after the election, it's all good.

The larger 3'x5' ones are ideal for patterning shotguns.

Excellent idea. I hadn't thought of it myself. I sure wouldn't mind helping out in getting those eye-sores off the corners as soon as possible and I guess there might even be some added satisfaction in using particular candidates boards at that.

Too bad we can't remove them until after the election!

Just make sure that if there is a runoff you don't pick up a candidates sign that could still be active. Same with the Republican or Democratic primaries. Picking up after the losers would probably be OK, but remember the winner will still be campaining in the presidenial election.

There are a good many ways to do this without using your back. We've mostly wrapped a chain around the bottom and jacked the chain up with a high-lift jack.

YouTube has a few good options too:
