Minnesota Office of the Secretary of State

Some municipalities have ordinances restricting the placement of lawn signs. In a state general election year (even years), these ordinances are overruled by Minnesota Statutes 211B.045 from 46 days before the primary until 10 days after the general election, and campaign signs may be posted in any size and number. For 2016, this period begins June 23 and ends November 18. In municipalities which have no sign ordinance, campaign signs may be posted in any size and number throughout the year.

Additional information on the legal placement of signs may be found on the Minnesota Department of Transportation's webpage about signs along highway right of way.
