NYC board: Trump skipped 21 years of primaries

NEW YORK (AP) - The New York City Board of Elections says Donald Trump didn't vote in any primary elections for 21 years.

The board says the possible Republican presidential candidate voted in a primary election in the 1989 primary for mayor, then didn't vote in another primary for 21 years. 1989 is when Rudy Giuliani beat businessman Ronald Lauder. Trump also skipped the 2002 general election.

TV station NY1 was the first to report the information.

Trump told the station that it was wrong and he's 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 2012 presidential bid.
