Election Campaign Signs

Minnesota State Statutes and the Edina City Code regulate the placement of campaign signs. For the 2021 School District Election, Edina City Code regulates the placement of campaign signs.

For the May 11 School District Special Election, campaign signs can be placed in yards and City right-of-way:

  • March 12 until May 18 (60 days before election and until seven days after the election)

Campaign Sign Rules

  • One campaign sign per residential property may be posted from 60 days before the school district special election until 7 days following the election.
  • One campaign sign is allowed on residential property placed 10 feet from traveled portion of roadway with property owner’s permission.  
  • 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.
