Flyers Give Voters the Wrong Dates (pt. II)

Boy, this just never gets old, does...oh wait, I wrote that last year:

A forged flyer going to voters in a closely fought Virginia congressional district seems aimed at suppressing Democratic turnout on Election Day.

Purporting to come from Virginia's Board of Elections, the flyer says "All Democratic party supporters and independent voters supporting Democratic candidates shall vote on November 5th." That's one day after Election Day.

Whoever is circulating the flyer seems concerned with electing Republicans. The phony information tells "Republican party supporters and independent voters supporting Republican candidates" to vote on Nov. 4, the real day of the election.

This has become the dirty tricks equivalent of stealing lawn signs; just as stupid, and probably about as effective.
