They're a source of much derision among Canberrans but finally one party is taking action on corflutes - albeit not from office.
In what had been billed as the "first ever post-election stomping of the corflutes", the Like Canberra party called on Canberrans to gather their "legally obtained surplus corflutes" to destroy them in what would be a cathartic experience for many people.
Corflute whacking party organiser and Like Canberra candidate for Brindabella Richard Tuffin said there had been a lot of anger about the density of corflutes.
"People were so sick of it, they also really concerned about littering aspect to it and actual danger of having them there. One person posted said they had a roo jump out from behind corflute," Mr Tuffin said.
"For me personally especially on Isabella Drive it was absolutely ridiculous. There were times you'd see a corflute pop up out of corner or eye and you'd be like 'what is that'. It's completely over the top. We wanted to give people an opportunity to take their vengeance."
As much as this election was heralded as a referendum on light rail, it was also maligned as a war of corflutes.
A barrage of smiling candidate faces buffeted Canberrans driving on every major thoroughfare in the city, with some falling victim to graffiti or vigilante action.
Candidates were up early on Sunday morning removing their deluge of signs from around the city.
Canberra Liberals candidate for Brindabella Mark Parton tweeted he was waiting for his corflute clean-up crew outside the Calwell Centre about 6am.
ACT Labor chief minister Andrew Barr promised his party's corflutes would be down by Sunday night.
Political canvassing is restricted within 100 metres of all pre-poll voting centres and polling places in the ACT.
Electoral Commissioner Phil Green said election day had gone relatively smoothly, and his office only received a handful of complaints.
They were largely about political party volunteers encroaching on the 100 metre exclusion zone around polling booths.
He said Elections ACT polling area managers, who each looked after eight to 10 polling places, had responded quickly to those complaints.
"Every report we got, we addressed. Either we removed the material ourselves, or we asked people to move them themselves. There were people driving vehicles with advertising around," Mr Green said.
"The impression that I got, they weren't handing out how to vote cards right outside the door. They were actually just 80 to 90 metres out, instead of 100 metres."
If elected, Like Canberra had promised to amend election sign legislation to cap corflutes at 100 per registered party with 40 signs per independent candidate.
Officials have said parties and candidates have 48 hours after the close of polling booths to remove the signs.
If they are not removed by 6pm on Monday, those responsible can be fined up to $220 per sign.
