Campaign Signs

Posted: Updated:
Byram, MS -

City elections are now just four weeks away.  And, candidates across the Metro are doing everything they can to get their names out there.

For the residents in Byram, this is their first election since becoming a city in 2009.  And, candidates are making sure their campaign signs are visible on every busy street.

We're told the signs must be at least ten-feet from the curb.  Officials with the Byram Public Works Department are driving through neighborhoods looking for violators.

"If it's on the city right-of-way we pick the signs up and bring them back to our office," explains Terry Griffin.

Then, they notify the candidate.  But, they will not throw away the campaign signs until after the election.

When asked how many they have you picked up so far, Griffin replied, "Maybe ten- to 15."

Many residents maybe undecided on who to vote for, but the candidates are hoping their signs will help voters remember their names.

"It's exciting because we as people we're going to be able to make those decisions," expresses a Byram resident.

Jacqueline Wright says she isn't interested in one particular race.  But, she's excited about going to the polls because she knows every vote counts.

"I think people are looking for change and something exciting and new," continues Wright.

Residents will head to the polls on Tuesday, May 7th.
