The legislation governing placement of posters at election time is The Litter Pollution Act 1997 as amended by the Electoral (Amendment)(No.2) Act 2009. The legislation provides that erection of posters is only permitted from the date the order is made by the Minister appointing the polling day or 30 days prior to the date of the poll, whichever is the shorter period. Thereafter posters must be removed within 7 days of the polling day.


The order for the Local and European Elections was made on the 25th March 2019. As a result the shorter period will apply which is 30 days prior to the date of the poll. Therefore postering will be permitted from Wed 24th April 2019 until midnight on the 31st May 2019. If posters are in place outside of these dates, fines may be issued at the rate of €150 per poster.
