With election day getting closer, you've probably noticed more and more campaign signs going up around town.
But in some cases, people say they're coming down as fast as they go up.
Over the past few weeks, we've had many people contact us about signs being vandalized or stolen from their yards.
"I haven't seen anybody actually putting them up or taking them down but you can tell the activity has been going on," Russell Shively said.
Shively is one of the people who contacted us.
He says a nearby stop sign has been the site of a political battle in the last week.
It started when someone tore a Romney poster from the sign, replacing it with an Obama sign, which was then destroyed and replaced with an anti-Obama sign.
Now, the signs are completely gone.
"This thing up at the corner was the first one that really caught my eye of damage," Shively said. "I've heard a lot of stories about damage to these signs, all over town and nationally, really. This is not just localized by any means."
In Reno, campaign signs cannot be posted on public property, which includes stop signs.
Candidates are allowed to post their signs as long as it doesn't violate city, county, and transportation regulations.
"A lot of people get tired of looking at them over a period of time, for sure," Washoe County Senior Deputy Registrar Luanne Cutler said. "But as long as the candidates follow all the rules, they're certainly allowed to do that."
A chain link fence, along California Avenue is public property, but it's not stopping people from posting signs there.
The city encourages their removal, but not on private property.
The Washoe County Sheriff's Office says people caught vandalizing or stealing signs from people's yards could face misdemeanor charges.
Even though we've heard of a number of cases of theft and vandalism, the they told us they haven't received any so far.
If you live in a condo or neighborhood with a homeowner's association you may be restricted to what signs you can put up.
