Tim Robbins Wanted to Vote. Cops Called. Vote Cast.

17092.thumbnail.jpgFor fifteen years actor/activist Tim Robbins has been voting at the same polling place in Manhattan. But this election his name wasn’t on the voter rolls, along with another 29 others over the first five hours of voting at his precinct.

He declined to fill out out a provisional ballot, and argument erupted between Robbins and the poll worker. Per TMZ, Robbins allegedly got loud, the poll worker said he was calling the cops, and Robbins responded by saying the poll worker was  trying to intimidate him so he wouldn’t vote.

Upshot: Robbins went to the City Board of Elections to get proof he was good to vote and did his civic duty in the ballot booth.
