Dr Von Muenster is the Liberal candidate for Coogee running against incumbent Labor MP Marjorie O’Neill.

Liberal MLC Chris Rath shared his disgust at the vandalized posters.

“Absolutely disgraceful behavior in Coogee today,” he wrote on Twitter.

‘Everyone has the right to display electoral material and all volunteers and candidates deserve to be treated with respect.’

Dr. Von Muenster described it as a “ghastly act” but said she would not be discouraged.

“It just shows a lack of respect that we should have for each other,” he said.

But I won’t be distracted. I’m focused on talking to people about the important decision they will make today for our families and our future, and moving NSW forward.”

Ms O’Neill is holding on to the Coogee seat by a narrow margin of just 2.3 per cent.

More than a million people have already voted after early voting opened a week ago.

Dominic Perrottet, who became prime minister 18 months ago after the resignation of Gladys Berejiklian, hopes to defy the odds and lead the Liberal-National coalition to a record fourth term.

But Chris Minns of the Labor Party is likely to be NSW’s next prime minister with The Australian Newspoll published on Saturday pointing to Labor securing a narrow majority government.

Labor led the coalition 54.5 to 45.5 on a two-party preference basis, a change of 6.5 percent from 2019.

Minns received a rock star reception when she arrived at a public school in her home constituency to cast her ballot in the election that will decide her political future.

Flanked by his wife Anna and their three children, Minns walked past a crowd of Labor supporters eager to shake his hand at Carlton South public school in south Sydney.

“I have a lot of confidence in the people of Kogarah,” he said as he cast his ballot shortly after noon on Saturday.

Local auto mechanic Nathan Ferraro was undecided on who to cast his vote for, as he was not convinced that either major party would help alleviate the rising cost of living.

But seeing the community’s positive reaction to Mr. Minns, he changed his mind.

‘You can see he is a true local. It has done a lot for the area,” he told the AAP.

Retaining his Kogarah seat will be Minns’ first hurdle on the road to government formation, as the electorate remains within a 0.1 percent margin, the narrowest for Labour.
