Affleck a No-Show at the Ballot Box

According to The Smoking Gun website, despite his political activism on behalf of a variety of Democratic candidates, as of 2003 Ben Affleck had voted exactly once in the past ten years and didn't even bother to vote for Gore in 2000 after traveling the nation stumping for him. Though this fact was exposed back in early 2001, apparently Affleck didn't even bother to register until late 2002.

While there's no evidence of whether or not Affleck managed to make time in his busy schedule of stumping for John Kerry in 2004 to actually make it to the polls to vote, perhaps Dickie Cranwell should remind him that if he wants to run for office in Virginia, he'll actually have to be registered here.
