A scene from somewhere in Queens: An orange and white "no electioneering" sign surrounded by campaign signs from six different candidates. New York law prohibits electioneering on a public street within 100 feet of a polling place, but the above photo and reports from around the city would seem to indicate that people don't always care about that rule.
We've received complaints about people electioneering w/in 100 ft. of RKA and 25 Knolls Crescent. How close were people at your site?— The Riverdale Press (@riverdalepress) September 10, 2013
Sometimes disputes got serious.

How are such disputes settled? By tape measure.
