Voting ends, lawn signs go on

The election is over, but the work of the election signs is not.

We’ll explain in a moment.

The Nov. 6 general election wrapped up Tuesday, and preliminary voting results are available on the Hood River News website: hoodrivernews.com

Ballots were due at the Hood River County Administration Building or at Cascade Locks City Hall by 8 p.m. Tuesday.

The landscape has been filled with lawn signs extolling candidates and ballot issues, and those signs can still be put to use — for nonpartisan purposes.

The Gorge Grown Farmers Market will give anyone a free pear in exchange for yard election signs. This helps in two ways: It keeps the signs out of the landfills, and gives Gorge Grown sign material that will be repurposed to promote farmers markets in the Gorge.

Bring your signs to the Gorge Grown Farmers Market at Hood River Middle School Thursday from 4-6:30, or on the final market, Nov. 15.
