Polling Place Campaign Signs

Here is something that I have always wondered about and I thought I’d throw it out here on the blog and see if anyone has an answer or even a different feeling about.

Why are there campaign signs, bunches and bunches of campaign signs, in the areas immediately surrounding polling locations?

Because I’m not sure that there are people who arrive at their polling place and say, “Oh there’s a nice sign, I’ll vote for that person!”

I mean, I know that there are “undecided” voters out there (although I did not come across one until last week when my step-daughter revealed that she remains unsure of who her presidential choice will be), but I can’t imagine that even an undecided voter will make their choice at the last minute as they arrive to vote based on the sheer number of signs for a particular candidate littering the area outside their polling place.

Can you?

When I go to vote, I know who I’m voting for and why. For some reason I tend to think that most, if not everybody, does the same. Signs do not play a part in that process, no matter how many there are or how close to my placing the actual vote they may be

If any readers have an explanation or a different viewpoint, I’d love to read it.
