Under NH RSA 664: 17 it is against the law for anyone to remove, deface or knowingly destroy any political advertising which is placed on public property. Violations are punishable by civil penalty of up to $1,000.

Concerns over the placement of political advertising signs on public property can be brought to the attention of local police or the New Hampshire Attorney General's Office.
