General Statute 14-384 makes it a misdemeanor to remove lawfully placed signs, including political signs. Complaints as to an alleged violation of this criminal statute should be directed to law enforcement by the complaining party, not the County Board of Elections.
There is also a provision in General Statute 163-32(e) that makes it a misdemeanor to remove lawfully placed signs on right-of-ways. An alleged violation of this statute should also be reported to local law enforcement by the complaining party.
Please note 163-32(b). This section of the statute describes the period as to when it is lawful for political signs to be placed on right-of-ways.
Copies of General Statutes 14-384 and 163-32 attached.
