Vaflier A phony flier being distributed in Virginia tells voters that Democrats and Republicans should vote on different days.

"Due to the larger than expected turnout in this years [sic] electorial [sic] process," the flier says, Democrats should wait to vote until Nov. 5th. Republicans should go ahead and vote on Nov. 4.

Grammar issues aside, it's actually a somewhat official-looking document. (Needless to say, everyone in Virginia -- and everywhere else -- must vote on or before Nov. 4.)

The state Board of Elections has distanced itself from the flier, and state police are looking into the issue.
