MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — As the election draws near, you’ve no doubt noticed more political ads and campaign signs. But those yard signs can point to a problem if they’re put in the wrong spot.
Make sure you’ve got the right rules before you stick your sign of support in the ground.
Edina City Clerk Deb Mangen says sign rules vary from one town to the next.
“In Edina, we do allow signs in the public right of way, but they need to be at least 10 feet from the traveled portion of the street,” Mangen said. “They need to be posted with permission of the adjoining property owner.”
She says political signs can be up from June 22 to 10 days after the general election.
