Alder Track reports:

"Several reports suggest that polling place administrators across the 42nd Ward have been agressively challenging the credentials of SEIU-related poll watchers. At 515 N. State the police were called. The diversion apparently allowed some precinct workers to distribute Natarus palm cards inside the 'red zone.'" 

Meanwhile, just up the street, a homeless man sprawled facedown on the sidewalk seemed pretty oblivious to the faceoff between Burton Natarus, the developer's friend, and his SEIU-endorsed challenger, Brendan Reilly.
