Christian Slater really tried to vote in the election this year, but Florida turned him down. The Hollywood star tweeted his travails at the polling place on Election Day from his verified account, and today briefly posted and then deleted a picture of the rejection letter that Florida sent to him — misspelling his name “Christina D. Slater.” Republicans in Florida enacted controversial laws making it more difficult to vote this year.
UPDATE (1:30 p.m.): After this story was published, Slater deleted the two tweets that contained photographs of the letter.
Update 12/1 (10:28 a.m.): He re-posted the letter with a better redaction of his address, now seen above, tweeting “back by popular demand.”
