"Pay other states, other people for your resources?" asked Kenny Wiley. "That just doesn't make any sense."
Voters Wiley were outraged by the news.
"It would be in their best interest if you're trying to win people over," said Wiley. "To go out and show your support for them."
So what do the candidates have to say for themselves.
Fonda Hawthorne running for House Representative of District Four claimed simple ignorance to the issue since it's her first time running for office.
Representative John Catlett said it was a money saving concern for him, something voters seemed to understand.
"Obviously cost is a factor," said Stanley Luker. "But I can see how you would want to spend as much money here as possible."
"I think it's more about the politicians connection with the people locally," said Christopher Hallett.
At sign making company Ad Craft of Arkansas, the people closest to the issue, owner Randi Evans said it's a no-brainer.
"If you're getting money from your constituents and your voters and the people you want to serve," Evans said. "You should keep your money right there inside the community."
The candidates who do that she said will get her vote.
While both candidates we spoke with said they did out-source their signs for cost reasons, they did buy locally for other campaign costs.
