They're surprisingly effective.
We’re now two months away from the October 15 election. We need places to put lawn signs!
Lawn signs are surprisingly effective. In municipal elections, signs are especially important for name recognition. A Twitter thread describing some of the evidence:
City of Vancouver rules for election signs. They can't be posted on public property. The most subtle rule is that they can't be placed between the street and the sidewalk - they have to be placed between the sidewalk and the property.
For renters and condos, Elections BC says:
Q: Can I post an election sign on my rental property or strata unit?
A: Landlords must not prohibit tenants from posting election signs on the premises to which their tenancy agreement relates.
Strata corporations must not prohibit the owner or tenant of a strata unit from posting election signs on the premises of his or her unit.
In both cases, landlords and strata corporations may set reasonable guidelines as to the size of election signs, and may prohibit placement in common areas.
