The residents of Broward County, Florida have recently received misleading robocalls telling them that they can vote by phone on Election Day, according to a report in the South Florida Sun-Sentinel on Friday.

The report didn't provide many details, other than the fact that the voice fallaciously identified itself as Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes.

When asked whether she had heard about the calls, the supervisor's public service director said that she hadn't, and that of course voting by phone is not an option.

The call is just one of a number of dirty tricks being pulled off around the country just before record numbers of voters are expected to turn up at the polls on Election Day.

Another unknown group is distributing flyers with official-looking letterhead around the area of Hampton Roads, Virginia that erroneously informs recipients that because of the crowds at the polls, the Virginia State Board of Elections is scheduling Republicans to vote on November 4th, and Democrats on the 5th.

@gustavratzenhofer,
If you'd picked up your phone and voted early like the rest of us, you wouldn't have to drive to town on Wednesday.

@dyslexia,
Actually I think you can... if say you are unable to reach a polling place due to your service in the military. Special Ops units, located deep in enemy territory, vote by satellite phone via proxy.

thanks for sharing that info shiksa, I'm sure many of us did not realize there are Special Ops units deep in Florida.

Seems eminently sensible to me - certainly after the hanging chads fiasco!

Someone should blow chads up!
