Florida STILL Messes Up The 2012 Presidential Election Votes…At Least For Christian Slater!

Poor Christian Slater!

The actor took to Twitter earlier this month to document his difficulties with the state of Florida while attempting to vote in 2012 Presidential election, and announced that after five hours waiting in line, confusion over his identity and voter registration, he was FINALLY able to cast his ballot and perform his civic duty!

Or so he THOUGHT!

According to a letter he received from the state a few days ago, his ballot was ultimately discounted and TRASHED because his signature on the provisional ballot didn't match the signature on his registration records…because they have him down as CHRISTINA.

Seriously?! WTF?!

All we have to say is that THANK goodness the election didn't come down to Florida this year, because we doubt he'd be taking the snafu in such stride if that were the case!

Ch-ch-check out the actor's frustrating, albeit HIGHlarious difficulties trying to rock the vote…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

iSmart!

In a special primary election taking place in Oregon to find a replacement for U.S. Rep. David Wu, who resigned as a result of a sex scandal, disabled voters are using iPads to cast their ballots!

Basically, voters will tap the screen on the iPad to pick a candidate, and then they'll send the ballot to a portable printer. From there, they'll put the ballot in an envelope and send it in.

Here's what 75-year-old Oregon voter Lewis Crews, who suffers from sever arthritis, had to say about it:
