From the white picket fence to a freshly-cut berm, political billboards have begun flooding the streets across the motu.
But with that has come vandals who have taken the opportunity to deface and damage signs.
Newshub has been sent a number of pictures of political billboards that have been graffitied, the faces of politicians cut out, and the words on them altered too.
While hoarding vandals aren't a new issue for political parties during the election campaign, they cost money and time from volunteers.
One particular billboard for the National Party's Wellington Central candidate, Scott Sheeran, had his first name cut out and turned to Ed, reading, "Ed Sheeran Wellington Central".
The billboard, which was on display in Mount Victoria, also had party leader Christopher Luxon's and Sheeran's faces cut out, as well as some letters in the word 'National' blocked out to read 'anal'.
When asked if National's Wellington Central candidate is Ed Sheeran, Luxon told Newshub: "Ah no, Scott Sheeran is, he's a great candidate, he comes with great experience."
"Ed Sheeran is welcomed in New Zealand at any time."
Luxon said his party has a "great team" of volunteers behind them to ensure billboards are going up as fast as they can.
"As fast as they go up and as fast as they get vandalised, they go back up again, so we'll work hard at that."
Luxon urged vandals to "give it up, there are more important things".
"[If] you feel strongly about something, get involved, get off the sidelines, enter the arena, stand as a candidate yourself if you want to change something."
ACT leader David Seymour described the vandalism as "childish behaviour", but is seemingly not phased because "we've got heaps of reserves".
"If you vandalise our hoardings, you just make our volunteers more determined to put them up," he told Newshub.
Labour MP and candidate for Maungakiekie Priyanca Radhakrishnan had a billboard of hers in Auckland graffitied at the weekend. Someone wrote "useless bitch" in big black letters over her name.
Labour declined to comment specifically on Radhakrishnan's billboard being targeted, but a party spokesperson acknowledged that hoarding vandalism happens every election.
"It's obviously frustrating for volunteers who work hard to put hoardings up," the spokesperson said. "Campaigns budget for replacement of hoardings and we're going to be getting our message out despite the occasional vandalism."
Meanwhile, a Green Party spokesperson said while it takes seriously the responsibility to minimise the impact of its campaign on the environment, needing to replace vandalised hoardings does make this harder.
"Hundreds of volunteer hours go into organising, assembling, and putting up billboards," they said. "People get involved with election campaigns because they care deeply about the future of Aotearoa. It can be demoralising for them to see their hard work vandalised."
