Election Campaign Signs

Minnesota State Statutes and the Edina City Code regulate the placement of campaign signs.

For the General Election Nov. 3, campaign signs can be placed in yards and City right-of-way beginning:

  • Sept. 18 (46 days before election and until seven days after the election)

Scroll to the bottom of this page to see a sketch design of where to properly place campaign signs on residential and commercial properties.

  • Any number of campaign signs may be posted from 46 days before the state primary in a state general election year until 10 days following the state general election.
  • Campaign signs should not interfere with regulatory signs and traffic control devices.
  • Campaign signs should not impede the view at intersections.
  • Campaign signs should not be attached to trees, rocks or power poles.
  • Campaign signs should not be placed on parkland, other publicly owned property or bridges/overpasses.
  • Illegally placed signs will be removed by our community service officers when we receive complaints. Signs will be stored at City Hall next to the Police Department on Eden Avenue. Pick up your campaign sign from here any time - you do not need to make arrangements.

Refer to the city sign ordinance and the Department of Transportation's website regulations. View an illustration of campaign rules (PDF) placement.
