Actor and political activist Tim Robbins encountered more difficulty than expected as he went to vote this Election Day.

When he showed up to vote in his Manhattan precinct, he was not on the list of official, registered voters, the New York Times reported. The error took Robbins on an hours-long journey throughout New York City.

Robbins was eventually confirmed to have registered to vote, and was allowed to vote.

Robbins, who like actress and wife Susan Sarandon, is politically liberal, voted for Ralph Nader in past presidential elections.
