So, you got your vote in, awaited results patiently and either jumped for joy or took to Facebook (Santa Fe's paper of record) and shared the following status: Never voting again #ugh.
You look out your window and see your proud People for Patti or Javier Gonzales' SF Forward sign, or if you're lucky, Bill Dimas' giant head on a banner, and wonder Now what?
Well, the City of Santa Fe has news for you. Starting tomorrow you can recycle political signage at one of several locations.
Per the city's website:
Starting on Wednesday, March 4, 2014 and through March 10, 2014 all political signs should be removed within five days after the election as per Section 9-2.15 Santa Fe City Code Temporary Political Signs H. All political signs shall be removed within (5) days after the election (ord. #2005-14, §38; Ord. #2007-11, §14; Ord. #2007-21, §2).
