HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. -- A homeowner is spending the day power-washing his home after politically-motivated vandalism appeared on Wednesday morning. 

The Huntersville man awoke to find his property damaged with white spray paint. The vandal wrote "O", "Obambo", and "Obama won" on his front door, garage door, electrical box, driveway and sidewalk.

The homeowner, Scott Register, tells NBC Charlotte that he believes he knows who's responsible. 

He says it all started when a woman saw him remove an Obama campaign sign from a produce store. Register continued that he knows the family, and says he had permission to remove the sign. The woman followed him home and confronted him about it, Register explained.

Next, an exchange on Facebook began about the presidential candidates, and the fact that Register supported Mitt Romney. 

Then, after the elections are said-and-done, Register finds his home defaced with politically-motivated markings, prompting him to spend the day power-washing away. 

Neighbors came out to help the man clean up the mess, and show their support. 

The damage is estimated around the $2,000 mark, and Register has filed a vandalism report with police.
