Political Signs



Many people aren’t aware of what the guidelines are in St. John for posting campaign signs.  Political campaign signs are allowed without a permit in any zoning district subject to the following: 

  1. Signs may announce the candidate seeking public office and other pertinent data or issues before the voters and other information pertinent thereto; 

  1. Signs shall not exceed four (4) square feet in total area for any one (1) sign or five (5) feet in height; 

  1. The maximum total sign area for all signs combined shall not exceed sixteen (16) square feet total for each lot or each dwelling unit.  Said signs shall only be placed on private property ten (10) feet or more from the street curb or curb line and only with the consent of the private property owner thereof; 

  1. Signs shall be removed within three (3) days after the election for which they were made. 

Campaign signs may not be placed on someone else’s property without their permission.   This includes the public right-of-way. The City does not allow any political campaign signs on their property; even when it is used as a polling place.  This includes the City Hall, Police Department and the Public Works Grounds.  


The right-of-ways are controlled by the Missouri State Highway Department and they have informed us that they do not allow signs on the right-of-ways as well. 

Too often we find political campaign signs placed along the Rock Road, or Woodson Road, or on other such public right-of-way areas. This is not allowed and such signs are removed and discarded.
