Albany- Primary candidates have until Tuesday night to remove election signs in Dougherty County.

Signs from several candidates who won't be taking part in upcoming elections can still be found all over the county. A sign ordinance calls for their removal.

"Ordinance requires all signs be removed seven days of election we are pleading with candidates remove signs have people pick them up or have residents pick them up themselves," Tracy Hestor said.

Candidates in runoffs can leave their signs out. Though signs are technically not supposed to be posted more than 60 days before the general election, code enforcers say they won't expect candidates in November's elections to remove their signs now when they'd be able to put them back next week.
