Poll: Should election posters be banned in Ireland?

Politicians love them but the general public are not so keen.

SOUTH DUBLIN COUNTY councillors have passed a motion calling for the restriction of election posters to designated areas.

Green Party councillor Noel Duffy, who put forward the motion, said it would cut down on litter and the dangers of falling posters, and eliminate “the unsightly spectacle of posters clinging to every public space during election time”.

Though Duffy’s proposal relates only to restrictions on where posters could be placed, there have in the past been calls to ban them altogether.

So, we want to know what you think: Should election posters be banned in Ireland?


Poll Results:
