Registered Democrats Ivanka Trump, Eric Trump can’t vote for Donald Trump in closed NY primary

Two of Donald Trump’s children, Ivanka and Eric Trump are not registered Republican and therefore cannot vote foro their father in next week’s New York primary.

Yahoo details how “Records from the New York State Board of Elections show that neither Ivanka Trump nor Eric Trump is enrolled in a political party. Trump’s oldest son, Donald Trump Jr., is a Republican….Both Eric and Ivanka Trump have also donated money to Democrats. Campaign finance reports show Eric gave $1,000 to Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., in 2010. Eric has made 11 other contributions totaling over $138,000 that all went to Republican candidates.”

Donald Trump confirmed in an interview with Fox & Friends that Eric and Ivanka were not enrolled in any political party, and therefore would not be voting for him in the 19 April 2016 primary:

“They had a long time [to] register and they were, you know, unaware of the rules, and they didn’t, they didn’t register in time,” he said. “So they feel very, very guilty.”

“But it’s fine, I mean, I understand that. I think they have to register a year in advance and they didn’t. So Eric and Ivanka I guess won’t be voting,” he said.

New York is a closed primary state; therefore, U.S. citizens who plan to vote in the 2016 New York presidential primary are required to be registered as either a Republican or a Democrat.

The New York State Board of Elections states on its web site that the deadline for new voter registrations was March 25, while registered voters had until October 9, 2015 to change their party affiliation.

According to Reuters, the two have (like their father) made political contributions to both Democrats and Republicans.

“…Campaign finance reports show Eric gave $1,000 to Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., in 2010. Eric has made 11 other contributions totaling over $138,000 that all went to Republican candidates…Ivanka’s campaign contributions have a more bipartisan bent. Records show she has donated over $240,000 to both Democrats and Republicans. Ivanka has given money to Schumer, Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J.,, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., Rep. Donald Norcross, D-N.J., District of Columbia Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton, and Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential bid. On the Republican side, Ivanka has given money to the presidential campaigns of Mitt Romney and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. In 2010, Ivanka gave $2,000 to Carly Fiorina’s U.S. Senate campaign.”
