(Newser) – Actor and political activist Tim Robbins, who filed a court order to vote after his name wasn’t in the poll books on Election Day, may simply have been in the wrong place at the wrong time. The election commissioner now claims Robbins filed a change-of-address form when he moved in 2004, reports the New York Daily News—and might have known about his new polling place had he bothered to vote since.

"That's a lie," Robbins says. "Voting records should show I voted at the same polling place in 2004 and 2006."
