ACLU: 5 Counties Sign Ordinances Violate First Amendment

Unfree State

Here’s another time I wholeheartedly agree with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

Maryland’s branch of the ACLU has put five counties on notice that their campaign sign ordinances violate the First Amendment, according to County Times.

The organization has notified officials from St. Mary’s, Harford, Washington, Charles and Talbot counties that their ordinances putting restrictions on when citizens and for how long citizens can display political signs must be changed, or they will be challenged in court.

The ordinances are similar to those recently overturned in Baltimore County where Judge Catherine Blake ruled the regulation of such signs is an infringement of First Amendment rights.

Do you agree with the ACLU, or not?
