Washington (CNN)The New York State Board of Elections acknowledged in a news report published Thursday that President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, registered to vote as a male despite being listed as a woman previously.
Board of Elections executive director Michael Ryan confirmed to The New York Daily News that the board made the error, not Kushner.
The Daily News said the Board of Elections updated Kushner’s gender from female to male in its system, AVID, the same day media reports highlighted the information.
Wired first reported the state Board of Elections showed Jared Corey Kushner registered to vote as a female, citing information obtained by the research tool LexisNexis.
The White House declined to comment on the story.
Kushner, who is married to Trump’s eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, has been under fire lately for occasionally using a private email account for correspondence with fellow administration officials, his lawyer, Abbe Lowell, confirmed to CNN on Sunday.
