Electioneering

Electioneering means to advocate or campaign in any way for the support or defeat of a particular candidate for political office or of a particular ballot item at issue in an election, and includes the posting, use or distribution of political signs or literature, including flyers.

Electioneering Guidelines

All those engaging in electioneering on behalf of self, a candidate, or a ballot proposition must abide by the following guidelines:

  • As provided by state law, electioneering may not occur within 100 ft of the designated polling location.
  • Electioneering will be permitted in specifically defined areas adjacent to the polling location, close to the 100 foot marked “no electioneering zone.”
  • No person is allowed to electioneer outside of the designated areas; within the 100 ft “no electioneering zone,” as prescribed by state law; or inside or directly in front of the entrance to any El Centro College or DCCCD building entrance.
  • Electioneering may only occur only during the times the polling place is open and only during the early voting period.
  • Electioneering signs may be erected in the designated electioneering areas beginning 24-hours before the voting period, but must be removed within 24 hours after the voting period ends. 
  • Posting or affixing signs or other electioneering materials on walls, windows, grounds, planters, doors trees, sidewalks, parking lots, driveways, benches, poles, fixtures or any other equipment or surface, except where specifically authorized, is strictly prohibited.
