Caroline Kennedy Did Not Vote In Many Elections

NEW YORK (AP) – Caroline Kennedy, who wants to fill Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s seat, has not voted in a number of elections, including one race for the very job she is seeking.

The Democrat registered at her current address on Manhattan’s Upper East Side in 1988.

According to Board of Elections records, she missed several Democratic mayoral primaries in 1989, 1993, 1997 and 2005.

She also skipped the 1994 general election, when Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan was running for re-election.

It is the same seat she hopes to take over if Clinton is confirmed as secretary of state in the new administration.

Her spokesman, Stefan Friedman, said Kennedy “recognizes just how important it is to vote” but has missed a handful of occasions over the last two decades.
