Lena Dunham DID vote, so everyone can just cool their jets. 

The creator and star of HBO series "Girls" has shot down rumors that she did not vote in the 2012 Presidential election, despite having shot a much-talked about ad for Obama in which she slyly compared voting to losing her virginity. 

New York political gossip site Room Eight reported last week that Dunham bailed on voting and was not on file in the New York voters office. 

However, Dunham was not going down that easily, and took to Twitter to set the rumor mill straight with the following series of tweets detailing her return home from India to cast her ballot:

Dunham did cast a ballot in the 2008 presidential election and switched her registration’s address to Brooklyn after that.
