Signs of the times

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Van­dal­is­ing vot­ers are be­ing re­minded that their bal­lot forms are the place to vent their frus­tra­tions – not elec­tion can­di­dates’ signs. The Auck­land City Har­bour News has been con­tacted by can­di­dates frus­trated that their road­side signs are be­ing re­moved or knocked down. Avon­dale act­ing Se­nior Sergeant Me­gan Dal­ton isn’t aware of any com­plaints to po­lice about the is­sue, but says steal­ing or dam­ag­ing signs is a crime. Peo­ple could be charged with a va­ri­ety of of­fences in­clud­ing theft or wil­ful dam­age. The law re­quires that can­di­dates take down their signs by mid­night on Oc­to­ber 11, be­fore the elec­tion on Oc­to­ber 12.
