And whatever you do, don't go stealing signs. In Kansas City, an anti-2 homeowner is fed up with the tomfoolery. KMBC reports:
Whether it was a teenage prank or a political ploy, homeowner Shaun Jones videotaped someone taking campaign signs from his front yard on Northwest 87th Terrace early Monday morning.
"That's the only one they bothered," Jones told KMBC's Natalie Moultrie.
The video showed a group taking all 11 of his "Vote No on Amendment 2" signs.
"What have I done other than say this is what I feel, what I believe and how I'm going to vote?" Jones said.
Jones said it is the second time in a week someone has taken his signs. After the first sign disappeared, Jones set up his surveillance camera.
"It's kind of humorous. Part of me wanted to catch them and say, 'Hey, stop acting childish, vote the way you want to vote,'" Jones said.
But what you can't see on the tape is that whoever took the signs also decorated Jones' front tree with toilet paper and knocked over a flower pot on the front porch, Moultrie reported.
Jones said that other "vote no" signs in his neighborhood disappeared overnight as well.
"It was a calculated effort. They came to canvass the neighborhood and take signs away from people who want to speak out about an issue," Jones said.
Jones has replaced the stolen signs.
"I didn't want them to take my signs. I want to be able to vote and speak out this way. I feel like that's been taken away from me," Jones said.
Jones said he is giving a copy of his surveillance tape to police since taking political signs from someone's front yard is considered stealing personal property.
It is Halloween. Political yard signs will succumb to tricks. Treat yourself to a few straight pins through the top of your signs and see if that doesn't stop the snatchers.
