What are fair campaign practices?
Fair campaign practices are regulated by M.S. 211B. Some of the practices regulated by this statute are contributions, advertisements, improperly influencing voters, limitations on the purpose for which money is spent, and Election Day campaign activities.

M.S. 211B.045 Noncommerical Signs Exemption: In any municipality with an ordinance that regulates the size of noncommercial signs, notwithstanding the provisions of that ordinance, all noncommercial signs of any size may be posted from August 1 in a state general election year until ten days following the state general election. Dakota County has policies governing the placing of signs on rights-of-way and municipalities may have their own ordinances.
