(Newser) – Not even celebrity status can save you from the mess that is Florida's ballot process. Christian Slater, who stood in line for about five hours on Election Day and tweeted all the way through it, just got a letter informing him that his provisional ballot was rejected, reports BuzzFeed. It seems election officials didn't think his signature matched up with an earlier one. Lest you be impressed with the doggedness of state officials, note that the letter misspelled his name as "Christina" Slater.

I didn't know he lived in Florida. But how could anyone not know who Christian Slater is? It's crazy.

I can't believe the damage to democracy Ric Scott has done in Flarida [sic].

That means Obama won Florida by a much bigger margin,otherwise Rick Scott shenanigans would have prevailed.
