Door-to-Door Advocacy

The City of Osseo requires Solicitors, Peddlers, and Transient Merchants to register with the Osseo Police Department and, in some cases, purchase a license to operate in the city. These restrictions do not apply to Door-to-Door advocacy, which includes "door-to-door canvassing and pamphleteering as vehicles for [sharing] religious, political and other ideas." Canvassers and candidates are allowed to go door-to-door to contact residents at any time of year, but this is especially common during election season.


Do you still have questions on the voting process or questions related to voting in Osseo? Please contact City Clerk LeAnn Larson by email or by phone at 763.425.4064.
