(CNN) – Virginia State Police may press charges against the person responsible for a bogus flyer in the Hampton Roads, Virginia area that told Democrats to vote on the day after Tuesday's election, according to the state's Board of Elections.
"It was a joke that got out of control on the internet," says Virginia Board of Elections Secretary Nancy Rodriguez.
The state's official logos appear on the flyer, which started circulating on October 24. It said Republicans and Independents leaning Republican should vote on November 4 - Election Day - and Democrats and Independents leaning Democratic to vote the following day.
It says the change in voting times is due to "larger than expected voted turnout" and says an "emergency session of the General Assembly has adopted the following emergency regulations to ease the load on local electorial (sic) precincts and ensure a fair electoral process."
Communicating false information to voters is punishable as a class 1 misdemeanor under Virginia election law.
