Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner Share a Date with the Polls on Election Day
Nothing brings a pair of friendly exes together like civic duty.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner were spotted casting their ballots at a polling station in L.A. on Tuesday. Affleck sported a trimmed beard with jeans and a plaid shirt, while Garner opted for leggings and a subtle black “Broken Heart” sweatshirt. They left the station together — albeit with some space between them — and both donned “I Voted” stickers.
The couple announced they were divorcing in June of 2015 after 10 years of marriage. Despite their split, they have remained amicable and have continued with co-parenting their kids, Violet, 10, Seraphina, 7, and Samuel, 4.
In September, the actors, both 44, were spotted grabbing dinner together without the kids at The Hungry Cat in Santa Monica.
“We are definitely a modern family,” Garner told Natalie Morales while promoting her latest movie Nine Lives in August. “We’re doing really well.” She added that her family’s dynamic is “children first” – and that spending quality time with them is what’s most important. “It has to be,” she stressed. “You don’t have a choice.”
Garner added that “parenting is about time,” explaining that “you can’t buy parenting” and that “no matter what, you have to actually get down on the floor and spend some time together.”
The two have done just that, spending a large amount of time together as a family. They’ve spent holidays together and even went on a month-long trip to Europe this summer.
“Ben was working in London on Justice League and I felt like, ‘Well, the kids should have that experience,’ and he and I are great friends and we just, we just all went en masse,” Garner explained. The trip even included an encounter with some royal youngsters. While at an indoor play center in London, Affleck told Graham Norton on BBC1, “I was the very last person to realize that Prince George and Princess Charlotte were in there playing with my kid.”
