Good thing last month’s mayoral election wasn’t close because if New Yorkers needed the Trump family to decide the outcome, they would have been out of luck. President Trump and his family of New Yorkers were not in the Big Apple Nov. 7 when voters went the polls, so they voted by absentee ballot. Or at least they tried to. Officials at the city’s Board of Elections said the President signed and dated an absentee ballot along with an application on Oct. 19, checking a box that said he would be absent from the city on Election Day.
First Lady Melania Trump did the same, submitting a handwritten form that had everything in capital letters. But the First Lady did not sign the envelope she put the ballot in as required by BOE, so her vote wasn’t counted.
Officials said the President’s ballot was fine. But that was before the Daily News pointed out to an official that the date of birth on his application was a full month off.
Trump, 71, was born on June 14, 1946, but his ballot application lists his birthday as July.
