Signs of the times

I voted in the primary election last Tuesday and while this is not  a particularly remarkable event there is one observation I wish to make.  What on earth is up with all the candidate signs?  There were literally dozens and dozens of signs for every single candidate...and there were a lot of candidates because every elected post was challenged by someone within each party.

The number of signs at Reed Intermediate where the voting took place was ridiculous and now they're popping up on people's front lawns.

Is anyone honestly influenced by a sign?  Is it possible that there's even one person out there whose mind is changed by a sign as he/she walks into the polling place? 

It's hard to imagine this nation's voters could be so shallow...but stranger things have happened!
