NEW YORK (AP) — The New York City Board of Elections says Donald Trump hasn’t voted in any primary elections for more than 21 years.

The board says the last time the possible Republican presidential candidate voted in a primary election was in the 1989 primary for mayor. That’s when Rudy Giuliani beat businessman Ronald Lauder. He also skipped the 2002 general election.

TV station NY1 was the first to report the information.

Trump told NY1 that it was wrong and he has voted in every general election.

His lawyer Michael Cohen said Saturday that “for one of the greatest international businessmen who travels all over the country and the world, his voting record is very, very good.”

The real estate mogul has said he’s weighing a presidential bid for 2012.
