Christian Slater's Vote Rejected In Florida

Christian Slater's Vote Rejected In Florida

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/30/christian-slaters-ballot-_n_2219453.html

MIAMI -- "Do you ever get the feeling that everything in America is completely fucked up?"

When actor Christian Slater utters those words as Hard Harry in the 1990 film "Pump Up the Volume," he had no idea that 22 years later he would live them in real life.

Slater's ballot for the 2012 General Election was rejected by the Miami-Dade County canvassing board, proving that not even the rich and famous were saved from Florida's trainwreck voting headache.

And not only was his ballot thrown aside but the canvassing board managed to call him by the wrong name, addressing him instead as Christina D. Slater

<<<<snip>>>

In the letter the Supervisor of Elections writes "After a thorough review, your provisional ballot was not counted because the signature on the provisional ballot certificate envelope did not match the signature on your voter registration record."

1. The Supervisor of Elections had better watch it, or Slater will go all

 

"Heathers" on his ass. (Awesome little black comedy, featuring Slater, Winona Ryder and Shannon Doherty among others.)

2. Ironic

He was in an episode of the West Wing. Donna had to find someone to cancel out her accidental Republican vote.

3. Florida is has become a true Southern State.

Glad we don't need the Confederacy to win elections.
