City of Loveland Regulations

ELECTIONEERING
State law prohibits electioneering on Election Day within 100 feet of any building in which a polling place is located. In a mail ballot election that polling location is defined as any location where a mail ballot “may be dropped off.”


ELECTION SIGNS
City sign permits are not required for placement of political signs on private property in the City; however, permission must be obtained from the property owner before signs are placed on private property. Political signs may only be placed upon private property behind the sidewalk.

Political signs are not allowed on the City’s parks, open land, medians, sidewalks, street right-of-way in front of City buildings or any other public area owned or controlled by the City of Loveland. The public right-of-way includes the area between the sidewalk and the street, as well as approximately two feet behind the sidewalk.

Any number of election signs are allowed in residential zones, provided each sign does not exceed nine square feet in area per face, is not greater than six feet in height, and is unlighted. In nonresidential districts, any number of election signs are allowed, provided each sign is not larger than 32 square feet in area per face. All signs must not be in violation of City Code.

Election signs are allowed on a lot, beginning 90 days prior to Election Day to which the sign relates and under State law must be removed within ten days after the election (November 7, 2017)

DOOR-TO-DOOR SOLICITATION
Political solicitations are exempt from the City Code provision prohibiting door-to-door commercial solicitations, except where the occupant of a private residence has chosen to post a “NO SOLICITATION”, “NO TRESPASSING” or similar sign near the entrance to the premises. Posting of such a sign prohibits any kind of solicitation at that residence. (City Code Chapters 5.12 and 9.46)


LITTERING
Campaign material is not exempt from littering prohibitions. Campaign materials must be securely placed in a manner to prevent from being blown or scattered by the wind. It is not permissible to place campaign materials in any fashion on motor vehicles without the vehicle owner’s permission. (City Code Chapter 9.46)


PENALTIES
Failure to comply with most of the City Code’s campaign regulations, such as the provisions relating to door-to-door solicitations and election signs, is a misdemeanor and upon conviction punishable by a fine not to exceed one thousand dollars, or imprisonment for a term not exceeding, one year, or by both such fine and imprisonment. (City Code Section 1.12.010)
