With President Trump spending little time in the city these days and currently on a 13-day trip to Asia, we got to wondering whether he would bother to vote in Tuesday's election.
We found that the Trump thought ahead, filling out an absentee ballot application with the city's board elections, signing and dating it Oct. 19.
As a reason, he checked the box that he would be absent from the city on Election Day.
First Lady Melania Trump did the same, handwriting her form. The Trumps authorized a campaign staffer to pick up the ballot itself, which must be postmarked by Monday or hand-delivered by the time polls close Tuesday.
The question is: For whom did the president cast his vote? Trump is clearly not a fan of Mayor Bill de Blasio, whom he once called probably the worst mayor in the history of New York City.
But Trump has made no mention of Republican candidate for mayor Nicole Malliotakis.
Malliotakis voted for Trump last year but has tried to distance herself during the campaign, at one point saying she would have written in Marco Rubio if she could do it over again. But she also said she will take every vote she can get.
NY1 reached out to the White House but have not received a response as to the president's choice for mayor.
Trump has not contributed to any city candidates, unlike in the past when he spread his money around to politicians from both parties.
Those donations have slowed, though. The last candidate for city office he contributed to was Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. in 2012. The last mayoral candidate he donated to was Bill Thompson 2006.
