Carlow County Council has removed around 70 general election posters so far during the 2020 campaign. 

These are posters erected at locations that are a "danger to the public or to road traffic", the Council have said. 

Posters are not permitted to be erected within 15m of the entry or exit to a roundabout and are not allowed on road regulatory signs.

Posters are also not to interfere with sight distance from any junction or entrance from a property. They are also prohibited on ESB poles.
