TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WIAT) — The Tuscaloosa County Democratic Party is warning people about a “bogus” flyer instructing Democrats to vote Wednesday.

The hoax flyer, reportedly posted in some areas in Tuscaloosa County, reads in part:

Due to the ending of Daylight Savings Time and the anticipated large voter turnout, the 2016 Election will be split into 2 days.

  • Republicans will be voting on Tuesday, November 8, 2016.
  • Democrats will be voting on Wednesday, November 9, 2016.
  • Independents can choose to vote on either day.

Vice Chair of the Tuscaloosa County Democratic Party released this statement:

There have been reports of this flyer being seen around town. If you see one, take it down. If you see someone with them, report them to the authorities.

To clarify–all polls in Alabama are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2016. All registered voters are able to vote at their assigned location while the polls are open.
