A GROUP campaigning against the LNP's planned asset sales has had 29 of its 30 signs around the city stolen.

Spokesman Dan Bessell said the signs were stolen some time on Saturday night.

He said two signs that were screwed on to the fence of a campaign supporter had been spray painted over.

"Whoever did it also knocked over Labor Party and PUP signs," he said.

"But they left the LNP signs alone."

Mr Bessell said the group would not be able to replace the signs before the election on Saturday.

"It's all about resources," he said.

"We don't have the funds."

Mr Bessell said the group would report the thefts to the police.

He said some of the signs were on stakes in people's front yards, so whoever stole them would have been trespassing.

"It seems well thought out," he said.

"They would have to have mapped where the signs were, then gone around and ripped them out."

Mr Bessell said the only signs they had left were those the group was carrying.

"We'll hold on to those," he said.

"We don't want them stolen."

Labor candidate for Bundaberg Leanne Donaldson said she had noticed some of her election signs were missing and some had been vandalised.

"I had a large banner on private property and that's gone missing," she said.

Ms Donaldson said it had been happening since the first night her signs went up.

Independent candidate Richard Freudenberg said he did not have signs up but he did have a Facebook site, and someone had tried to hijack that.

"There are a lot of sneaky things happening," he said.

The PUP's Rob Brown said he had had a lot of signs destroyed or gone missing.

"I've probably lost about 20 to 30 signs," he said.

LNP candidate and Member for Bundaberg Jack Dempsey said numbers of his signs had also gone missing.

"If anyone has any evidence they should contact the police," he said.
