Eric and Ivanka Trump won't be eligible to vote for their father in the closed Republican Party primary after missing the deadline to register with a political party.

"They were unaware of the rules and they didn't register in time," Trump said this morning on “Fox and Friends.” "So Eric and Ivanka, I guess, won't be voting."

The deadline for registered voters to change party enrollment was Oct. 9, 2015, more than six months ago. The deadline to register as a new voter was March 25.

"They feel very, very guilty. They feel very guilty" Trump said this morning. "But it's fine. I understand that."

Records from the New York State Board of Elections show that Eric, 32, and Ivanka Trump, 34, are registered voters who are “not enrolled in a party.”

Donald Trump Jr., 38, as well as Donald and Melania Trump, are registered Republicans, the records show. Because New York has a closed primary, only registered members may participate in a party’s primary.

Trump's younger daughter, Tiffany, 22, is a registered Republican in Philadelphia.
