Campaign Sign Placement

Campaign signs are an important part of the campaign process. Placement of campaign signs is regulated by state and local laws and ordinances.  Campaign signs can be displayed 46 Days prior to 10 days after the election.  

Prohibited Placement - Minnesota State Statute 160.27 prohibits placement of signs in certain areas including:
• Placement, painting, printing or affixing on any object within the limits of any highway;
• On private land without the consent of the owner or occupant;
• On public utility poles;
• On trees or shrubs;
• By painting or drawing on rocks or natural features; and
• Within the “right of way” or blocking the sight lines of drivers entering the highway or leaving the highway onto public streets or private driveways

Safety Hazards - Signs which pose a safety hazard or are placed in violation of laws and rules may be removed with or without notice. Every effort is made to be fair and impartial in administering the laws which govern signs, so that all candidates can expect equal treatment. At street locations and driveway intersections, place signs so that they do not block a driver's line of sight for drivers either entering the highway or drivers leaving the highway onto public streets or private driveways.
