Ivanka Trump Blames ‘Onerous’ NY Rules For Not Registering To Vote

It was a delightful irony to hear that Donald Trump’s children, Eric and Ivanka, did not remember to register to vote and thus will not be voting for their father. However, Trump’s daughter claims it has nothing to do with negligence but unfair rules.

“I’m an independent, and I’ve always voted based on the candidate, as opposed to based on the party. And it was actually a very interesting experience,” Ivanka said on CNN.
“New York has one of the most onerous rules in terms of registration, and it required us to register a long time ago, almost — close to a year ago. And we didn’t do that. We found out about it sort of after the fact,” she added.

The Hill reports:

Ivanka Trump, 34, and her brother Eric Trump, 32, did not register to vote for New York’s closed primary April 19, which requires voters be registered Republicans to vote. Trump himself earlier this week knocked the “unfair” rules, saying his kids felt “very, very guilty.”
 
Ivanka, who has made nearly a half-dozen campaign videos in recent months speaking about the importance of registering to vote, said Tuesday night that her own experience spurred her making the videos.
 
“It was our first, kind of, foray into politics. We didn’t realize how the whole system worked,” Eric Trump said on CNN of not registering to vote, noting, “There’s no one that’s been more visible on the campaign than the two of us.
 
“It actually was a great educational process for us, and one that probably helped the campaign a lot.”
