The law states that a landlord may not prohibit a tenant from posting or displaying political signs related to any of the following: 1.

Issues that are before a public commission, public board, or elected local body for a vote. Furthermore, signs may even be posted or displayed in windows and on doors in multifamily dwellings, or from the yard, window, door, balcony, or outside wall of a single-family dwelling. Managers and rental owners do have some control. They can require that the signs only remain posted or displayed for a “reasonable amount” of time, typically 90 days prior to the election and 15 days after the election, and can prohibit signs based on the following: 1.......
