    A phony State Board of Elections flier advising Republicans to vote on Nov. 4 and Democrats on Nov. 5 is being circulated in several Hampton Roads localities, according to state elections officials.


    In fact, Election Day, for voters of all political stripes, remains Nov. 4.


    The somewhat official-looking flier - it features the state board logo and the state seal - is dated Oct. 24 and indicates that "an emergency session of the General Assembly has adopted the follwing (sic) emergency regulations to ease the load on local electorial (sic) precincts and ensure a fair electorial process.
    "

    The four-paragraph flier concludes with: "We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause but felt this was the only way to ensure fairness to the complete electorial process.
    "

    No emergency action has been taken by the General Assembly. It is not in session and lacks the authority to change the date of a federal election.


    State Board of Election officials today said they are aware of the flier but disavowed any connection to it.


    "It's not even on our letterhead; they just copied the logo from our Web site," said agency staffer Ryan Enright, noting the flier has been forwarded to State Police for investigation as a possible incident of voter intimidation.

    This should be illegal. It is our constitutional right to vote and whoever created these flyers is suppressing if not violating that right. This is a violation of the law and these people should be arrested. You CANNOT, CANNOT suppress people's right to vote. This is absolutely outrageous!

    Well of course it is, just like the racist bullshit put out there. It's a bunch of scared little peons that know Obama is ahead in the election. Any freak can make something like that on a computer, on both sides of the political spectrum.

    The Republican Party would never stoop to tactics like this. They will just run on their platform and hope that's enough to win this election!

    the fact that you actually feel that way is pretty pathetic. you don't care if McCain wins by cheating and stealing the election as long as he wins. That's why republicans SUCK!

    Thank goodness the story was on MySpace. Otherwise, I wouldn't have believed a word of it.

    So if the election were between Obama and Bush, and the only way for Obama to win were to cheat, you would rather have Bush for four more years? I am supposed to believe that?
