Word broke out late last night that Lena Dunham wasn’t on the list of New Yorkers who voted. Some people consider this to be BIG since Lena made a video talking about her *first time* voting. This is all due to some internet snooping by the New York political blog Room 8.
At first I started to think about all the ways Room 8 was wrong. Did she have a second house? Was she voting with her old address at Oberlin? Maybe the voting roll was wrong? That’s totally possible. But then I read this Gawker article. And with it this tweet. Vote damn you vote!
Big time RT @juliaberndt I know you’re out and about in India. But, you did vote, right?

“Big time?” What the hell does that mean? Ugh. She clearly didn’t vote. Now what are all those people Lena Dunham tried to convince to vote going to do? Can you become a born again voting virgin? Ugh, now all I can think about is how Lena Dunham didn’t vote in a state where her vote didn’t matter. I still don’t care about this at all.
UPDATE: Lena Finally woke up from her long slumber to find out she wasn’t on a piece of paper she shouldn’t have been on. She voted at her dad’s place. We’ll let you know when you need to invest any emotional interest in this story.
…I went to my old polling place with my dad, where they let me vote by affidavit (what was totally allowed.)
