Question: I've noticed some campaign signs alongside the road and very close to intersections. Is this legal?

Answer: Placement of campaign signs and other unauthorized objects in state highway rights of way is prohibited under Minnesota State Statute 160.27. In addition, campaign signs may not be placed on private property outside of the right of way limits without landowner consent.
