AUDUBON — With the General Election coming up on Nov. 3, the number of political signs has gone up around Audubon.

Recently the Audubon County Sheriff’s office has received numerous reports of individuals stealing campaign signs out of their yards.

Officials ask all members of the community, “to understand it’s an election year, to respect each other’s rights to express their political affiliation freely, and respect others’ property. Lastly, remember that taking property from somebody else is theft and you could be charged.”
