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.
