Virginia Vote Warning

The GOP nasties are screwing around with the vote in parts of Virginia. There is a phony flier going around the Hampton Roads area telling Democrats that to relieve congestion at the polls Dems are supposed to vote on November 5th.

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.

Assholes! If you have friends or family in Virginia please let them know that Election Day is the 4th regardless of your party affiliation.
