On Wednesday, a rumor that Lena Dunham never cast a ballot in the 2012 presidential race was touted by Perez Hilton, The Daily Beast and other outlets. But the "Girls" creator insists that the story was unfounded. "I did vote," Dunham tweeted Thursday.
"I tried to get an absentee ballot but, because our nation's voting system is a steampunk cornmaze, it didn't arrive." She added, "So not to be a martyr about it but I flew to New York to vote.I wasn't sure if my change of address had officially been registered [so] I went to my old polling place with my dad, where they let me vote by affidavit (what was totally allowed.)"
