Can a municipality ban campaign signs on property owned by the municipality, such as at city hall?

As a general rule, Illinois municipalities can prohibit campaign and other signage from being placed on municipal property. However, Section 17-29 of the Illinois Election Code does allow campaign signs to be placed on government property that is being used as a polling place on election day, and also during early voting periods, so long as these signs are located outside of the campaign free zone, as defined by state statute.
