DescriptionThe day began on a tense note, when, shortly after the polls opened at 7 a.m., Republican candidate Sam Katz began complaining about violence against his supporters, as well as Election Day mishaps that appeared too organized to be coincidental.

Katz said that one of his supporters was punched in the mouth at a polling place near the University of Pennsylvania when that supporter asked a Street supporter to stop sticking pro-Street signs on top of pro-Katz signs.

Dr. Frank Curnett got treatment at an emergency room for the laceration. The alleged assailant fled and no immediate arrests were made, police said.
