NEW YORK - The New York City Board of Elections says Donald Trump hadn't voted in a primary elections over 20 years.

The board said before the 2010 N.Y. primary, 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.

Trump 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.

Editor's Note: An earlier AP wire suggested that Trump's absence from voting since 1989 included the most recent primary in 2010, whereas it represents primaries prior to 2010.
