Throughout the year, door-to-door peddling, soliciting and canvassing raises questions from Blaine residents. While most of these activities are regulated by the City, they cannot be prohibited entirely.
A canvasser, for example, may go door-to-door without a permit from the City. A canvasser may be a person asking for signatures on a petition, requesting support for a political candidate or position, or seeking donations for a religious organization.
For your safety, remember the following:
All peddlers and solicitors are
Required to obtain a permit from the City
Required to carry their City-issued photo ID/license with them and must show it a upon request
Restricted to operating between the hours of 9 a.m. and 7 p.m., and they are not allowed to solicit on Sundays and State or National Holidays
Owners and occupants should:
Not let a peddler, solicitor, or canvasser into your home, even if they have a permit
