Political Sign Regs/Electioneering & Campaigning


Restrictions: Nevada Revised Statutes sections 293C.328, 293C.361 and 293.740 set the standards. On Election Day, no one may electioneer with 100 feet of the entrance to the building or structure in which a polling place is located. During the period for early voting, no one may electioneer within 100 feet of the voting area. If the early voting site is on private property (e.g., mail, supermarket, etc.), no electioneering is allowed anywhere on the premises unless the owner expressly agrees to it.

Definition: Electioneering is defined as:
Campaigning for or against a candidate, ballot question or political party by:

Buying, selling, wearing or displaying any badge, button or other insignia. A person may wear political insignia while voting only if he or she is reasonably unable to remove or cover it.
Polling or otherwise soliciting from a voter information as to how they voter intends to vote or has voted.
Soliciting signatures for any kind of petition.

Political Sign Regulations

Local as well as state laws govern the use of campaign signs. State law governs campaign signs placed within highway rights-of-way. Check NRS 405.030 and 405.110 for specific prohibitions, removal policy by the Department of Transportation, and possible penalties.

State law sets time periods for the placement of campaign signs along interstate and primary highways. Campaign signs must not be placed next to these highways more than 60 days before a primary election and must be removed 30 days after the election. A successful candidate in the primary election may display his or her campaign signs through the following general election, removing them 30 days later (NRS410.400(4)). Please contract the Department of Transportation at (775) 888-7000 for further information.
