The political yard sign may be dead as result of social media; as it surpasses the information looping in the world and local cultures. The social media cost to candidate appears much cheaper and more effective bang for the buck... so holdover use of the yard signs causes some issues for voters and public in reading candidates branding.the cost of a puder and access to one for voters seems a no brainer in the democratic model.
DLF'er can not rely on yard signs to protect their turf in branding their realm of influence. Use Senator Cohen & Foung as examples. Cohen followed traditional DFL protocol, Foung followed primary DFL protocol. These two routes to and end present new candidate and voter information searches to be informed voters. In St Paul news papers seem to fail at local reporting anymore and tribe system strangely working better with local politics as well as social media!
