2022 Elections

Political signs

From 46 days prior to the primary election up to 10 days following the general election, anyone can place any number or size of signs on their property.  However, if you plan to place the signs close to the street, there are a few additional rules to remember.

Signs must be at least five feet from streets and the five feet is measured from the following:

  1. The curb of a paved roadway.
  2. The paved street surface for those streets is without curbs or shoulders.
  3. The edge of the aggregate surface for gravel streets or those paved streets with improved gravel shoulders.

No political signs may be placed on public lands (including parks and open spaces).

Within thirty feet of street intersections, signs are limited to 30 inches in height.

Redistricting Update

Shorewood's Legislative District split into District 45A and District 45B during this year's Redistricting.  This resulted in Shorewood having to redraw Precinct boundaries.   All residents will receive notification from Hennepin County regarding their new precinct and polling place prior to the Primary Election scheduled for August 9, 2022.   

On March 14, 2022, the Shorewood City Council voted unanimously to approve the following Precincts and Polling Places following the State Redistricting process.  District 45A  will contain the newly created Shorewood Precinct 1, which is a combination of the former Precincts 1 & 2 and will vote at Minnewashta Church.  The new Shorewood Precinct 2, which is a combination of the former Precinct 3 and a portion of the former Precinct 4 that lies within the 45A District, will vote at Shorewood Community and Event Center.  The new Shorewood Precinct 3  is located in District 45B, which is a portion of former Precinct 4 lying north of Covington Road, was required to become its own precinct and will vote at Excelsior Covenant Church.    The new Shorewood Precinct 4 is located in Cathcart Park, in Carver County and currently has no residents/voters.
