I understand that. I think they have to register a year in advance and they didn’t. So Eric and Ivanka, I guess, won’t be voting.”
New York state has a closed primary, which means that voters have to be enrolled in a certain party, the one they vote for, for months before Election Day. This year, voters had to register as either Republicans or Democrats by October 9, 2015 in order to vote.

Trump also has another daughter, Tiffany, who is 22, but there isn't any information available for her, according to US Weekly.
