Don't fall for it!

That's what Democratic officials say about a fake e-mail.

The e-mail falsely says Texans who cast a straight party ticket would also have to select Presidential Candidate Barack Obama to make their vote for him count.

Party officials warn that in some voting systems, if you choose the whole Democratic ticket, then also vote for Obama,  it will cancel the straight-ticket vote.

The source of the email is being investigated.
