Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli says local laws imposing special restrictions on temporary political signs are invalid.
“Any ordinance that places heavier burdens or greater restrictions on temporary political signs than are placed on any other temporary signs is invalid,” Cuccinelli said in an official opinion letter dated June 1.
The opinion was in response to a inquiry from Del. David Ramadan (R-Loudoun County). He said some localities were seeking to restrict temporary political signs to two feet-by-two feet in size, while other types of temporary signs were not so restricted.
