ALBANY - Everywhere you look there's an election sign. And Albany city commissioners don't like it.

David Williams brought some pictures he'd taken in recent days of candidates violating the city's sign ordinace. It says there can only be one sign per candidate on any property, and all signs have to be out of the right of way.

Albany's code enforcement office says it's been doing it's best, picking up more than a thousand illegal signs in the past month.

Tracy Hester said, "We're a very small staff as we go about normal duties we pick up signs."

After Tuesday homeowners, candidates and their staff will have a week to remove all those political signs, unless there is a runoff.
