Holidaymakers who left Tallinn for the weekend may have been caught off guard by the hundreds of new political posters around the city when they headed back to work on Monday.

With the Estonia-wide local government elections due on October 20 (e-elections start a little earlier), a sizable volume of campaign ads has been wheeled out by the four major parties over the last few days.

The ads pledge everything from sound public finances and better employment opportunities, to public transport projects and doubling the birth benefit.

The most recently published popularity poll found that the Center Party has a clear lead, supported by 35 percent of respondents nationwide and 50 percent in Tallinn alone. They are followed in the nationwide poll by the Social Democrats, the Reform Party and IRL, with 15, 13 and 8 percent support, respectively.

Here is a sampling of posters from the start of election season.
