The fliers, photographs of which were obtained by The Daily Caller, were found in the Charlotte, North Carolina area on Election Day 2012.

One flier, headlined “Souls to the Polls,” depicts members of the Ku Klux Klan wielding torches and black-and-white illustrations of African-American lynchings. The flier is marked, in its upper left-hand corner, with a seal for the NAACP.

The NAACP did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Another flier disseminated in the Charlotte area made its point more explicitly.

Obama addressed the NAACP’s July 2012 convention in Houston with a prerecorded video message. Romney also spoke at the event, where Vice President Joe Biden was a keynote speaker.
