Brit Radcliffe Visited Polling Booths

HARRY POTTER star DANIEL RADCLIFFE headed to the U.S. polling booths on Election Day (04Nov08) - even though he wasn't allowed to vote.
The British-born actor, 19, is currently starring in Broadway stage show Equus - and although he wasn't eligible to vote, he made sure he could soak up the atmosphere by tagging along with one of his American co-stars.
Millions of U.S. citizens, including celebrities like Tim Robbins, LL Cool J, Lindsay Lohan and Pharrell Williams, queued for hours to log their votes at the ballot box - with Democrat Barack Obama eventually being announced as the new president.
And Radcliffe was delighted to have witnessed the monumental scenes at the polls near New York University.
He tells the New York Post, "Barack Obama's treated like the Messiah in England.
"We don't have particularly inspirational politicians, certainly no one who can draw crowds in the thousands."
