Although it's not her first time, Lena Dunham still put much thought into her Election Day outfit today. The "Girls" star tweeted this morning, "Ladies, put on your voting best. May I plz see pics of your voting "looks"?"
After getting some criticism over her simple black dress and black thigh-highs, she tweeted another picture with more accessories: an oversized pair of sunglasses and a "patriotic" red peacoat.
Which got us thinking about what we're going to wear to the polls today. Is a red, white and blue theme in order? Do we go for comfort (today is going to be a very long day, after all) or dress up for the momentous occasion?
So we're asking you: what are you wearing to vote in the 2012 presidential election? Send us your submissions below or tweet @HuffPostStyle with the hashtag #DressedToVote. Let's see those fierce, civic-minded styles!

Apologies for the MySpace-esque angle, it's hard to get an outfit pic solo. I thought this Iron Man "Be A Hero" shirt was appropriate on a day like this.

And the color of my underwear indicates whom I shall be voting for.

Voting in a swing state (Pennsylvania) calls for a heavy camo jacket, lace-up boots, and of course, red lipstick!

This Floridian is thrilled to have cast an absentee ballot in Florida where Obama really needed my vote. I was also thrilled to not have to stand in line today.
