I think everyone from your mother to Leonardo DiCaprio has told you how important it is to vote, but sometimes even when you do everything right and even when you’re Tim Robbins, things don’t always go smoothly. Today, Tim Robbins got turned away for his polling place today, which he has voted at for over 10 years.

He told TMZ cameras:

“This is what you have to do to vote… I had to go down to see a judge… My name was not on the roll, and I’m not the only one. According to workers, 30 people in 5 hours had been taking off the rolls. You can do the math on that. 6 per hour, per district across America…”

TMZ reported (I can’t believe I’m quoting TMZ):

Apparently, Robbins has been voting at that polling place for more than a decade, but today his name wasn’t on the register. They told Robbins he had to fill out a provisional ballot but he didn’t want to do it. An argument erupted between Robbins and the poll worker. Robbins allegedly got loud and the poll worker said he was calling the cops.

Robbins accused the poll worker of trying to intimidate him so he wouldn’t vote.

Robbins went downtown to the City Board of Elections to get proof he was good to vote.
