Campaign Sign Regulations

Every candidate that files is given a packet that has the campaign sign regulations. If signs are in violation of the sign regulations they will be removed by Public Works Department. Removed signs will be at the salt shed at the Public Works building located at 8635 West Point Douglas Road. Please direct complaints to Public Works 651-458-2808.

City Code

Minnesota Statutes, Cottage Grove City Code, Washington County Highway Department, and the State of Minnesota Department of Transportation all regulate the placement of signs promoting the candidacy of a person running for governmental office. If you have any questions relating to the placement of campaign signs, please call 651-458-2827.

Minnesota Statutes 211B.045 states that in any municipality, whether or not the municipality has an ordinance that regulates the size or number of noncommercial signs, all noncommercial signs of any size may be posted in any number from 46 days before the State Primary in a State General Election year until 10 days following the General Election.
