(US election filter) Is it unlawful for me to post some homemade additional "vote here" signs to make my polling place easier to find?

I'm a Minnesota resident, and we were redistricted recently. This means my polling place changed for the first time in decades. The new location is a tiny, hard to find park building at the end of a dead-end street. The only signage during the primary election was directly in front of the building where it was too late to help anybody. Moreover, there is a school nearby that shares the same name as this park building; I went there in first in error and I can easily imagine other doing the same, and not having my tenacity in figuring out the correct location.
I brought up this issue with poll workers in the primary and their reaction was very "meh whatever."
I'd like to make a couple "vote here" sandwich boards pointing the way to this location. I'd probably make them as identical as possible to the one outside the polling location. I'd post them in the right-of-way.
I'm wondering if doing this is somehow illegal?
