CANDIDATES’ POSTERS CAN be seen all over the country after Taoiseach Enda Kenny called the general election yesterday.

Some people were too keen and may be fined for erecting their posters early. 

Glenealy, Co Wicklow has convinced candidates to keep the place a poster-free zone in the run up to 26 February.

Politicians can use a number of ways to contact constituents, from social media to letters and door-to-door visits. Are election posters now redundant or do they still influence voters?

We want to know, should election posters be scrapped?
