Considering posting a campaign sign for a candidate outside at your home or office?  There are definitely some things to consider.  The Alaska Department of Transportation has some guidelines you should review before putting a sign outside your home or office that may be in the right of way.  Check out their website at http://dot.alaska.gov/stwddes/dcsrow/campaignsigns.shtml for details.   

Unauthorized signs on private or commercial property adjacent to the State’s public right of ways are prohibited by AS 19.25.105 (a) and (c) if they are either located within 660 feet of the nearest edge or legible from the main traveled way of the State’s public right of way.  See this letter from Heather Fair,  Statewide Right Of Way Chief with the Alaska Department of Transportation --> http://dot.alaska.gov/stwddes/dcsrow/assets/pdf/campaignsigns/2017_campaign_letter.pdf

Before posting a sign in the yard of your home, you might want to check with your homeowners association regarding any rules they may have about posting political signage.  

If you require assistance related to specific right of ways, contact the appropriate State Right-of-Way Office (see page 2).
