Just days remain until election day and one would expect to start seeing candidates and their supporters taking their campaigning efforts to the next level.

Folks in the golden triangle say they feel like they've seen fewer campaign signs this year than now.

Just days remain until election day... and one would expect to start seeing candidates and their supporters taking their campaigning efforts to the next level... but some folks in the golden triangle say they feel like they've seen fewer campaign signs this year compared to years past.

Wcbi's stephen pimpo went out to local neighborhoods to talk with voters and see why that is.

"i want the people to know in my community that these are the people we should stand behind."

That's why life- long columbus resident roy turner says he has these signs supporting us senate candidate mike espy and district 5 election commissioner tiffany turner in his front yard.

But with one of the most anticipated elections in recent memory just days away... turner says he's seeing less campaign signs than usual.

"you don't usually have as many out as they usually do because the streets usually be full of campaign signs and stuff.

People be putting them in their yards and stuff."

He says he plans on adding a sign supporting the biden-harris presidential ticket but says local candidates have made their material more available.

"mike espy has and tiffany have but as far as people from biden and harris campaign, we haven't really seen them people campaigning in this area."

Trump-pence supporter amy buckley says she has had even more difficulty in getting a sign in the west point area.

"i do have a couple neighbors with a biden sign and a trump sign but i have seen zero access to the biden signs and the trump signs."

Buckley also says she has noticed less campaign signs this year and offered several possible reasons.

"covid has changed a lot of things and maybe the hostility with this crazy election.

You got the crazy democrats and you got the crazy republicans."

She says that more and more people may want to avoid that hostility by not displaying a campaign sign for the presidential candidate they support.

"i think everybody wants to avoid it.

To avoid the election all together but everybody should vote for sure."

"politics play a little part in it and stuff like that and a lot of people don't people to know who they're voting for and stuff like that."
