As well as contending with the battle to win enough votes, council candidates have to keep a close eye on their signs dotted around Griffith.
Councillor Simon Croce secured a prime location for a 1.2 metre by 2.4 metre corflute only to have it go missing.
"I think it might be in someone's pool room next to the jousting sticks," Cr Croce said.
"If people wanted one, I would have given them one."
Cr Croce said he'd spotted around five of his signs which have gone missing since they'd been put up, from the corner Ulong and Olympic Streets, Willandra Avenue, Kookora Street and Beelbangera Road.
"It gets a bit expensive replacing signs," Cr Croce said.
Taking the theft of one of his largest signs seriously, Cr Croce said he was seeking CCTV footage which he could take to the police.
"I expect a few to go missing but not to this extent," he said.
"It could be a little more sinister than just collectors or vandals, I would like to think it's just souvenir hunters but I'm not so sure."
To replace the sign at the corner of the roundabout at McDonald's and Woolworths, grabbing some textas to draw up his own.
While Cr Croce's sign is the largest one which has gone missing, he's not the only candidate that's been affected.
Louis Toscan said part of a sign he shared with deputy mayor Christine Stead on Banna Avenue was pulled from the ground and thrown on the road late on a Friday night.
CCTV footage later showed some people walking along the street had pulled up the sign, however later another resident came by to pick the sign up off the road, leaning it against the fence so cars didn't drive over it.
Further up on Banna Avenue's top block, Councillor Glen Andreazza said two of his corflutes had been pulled out of the garden of a private property - even taking the stakes in the ground.
With no trace of the signs after they'd been removed Cr Andreazza said it was simply an inconvience to replace them.
Councillor Anne Napoli said her corflutes hadn't gone missing this year but in 2016 had found four of her posters had been removed.
She said was disappointing when election signs were damaged or removed since they cost a lot of money for candidates to replace.
