Top White House adviser Jared Kushner is reportedly registered to vote in two states — something President Trump likened to voter fraud this week.

Kushner, Trump's son-in-law, is registered to vote in both New Jersey and New York, The Washington Post reported Thursday, citing election officials and voting registration records.

Kushner registered in New Jersey in 1999 and cast votes in the state through the November 2009 state general election. He then registered in New York at his Park Avenue address and began voting in New York in 2010, the report said.

Trump on Wednesday morning announced he would ask for a "major investigation" into voter fraud. He cited "those registered to vote in two states" as part of the problem.

It is illegal to cast a ballot in multiple states, but it is not illegal to be registered in two states at the same time. This often happens when a person moves to a new state but their old state has not yet updated its voter rolls.

Kushner is among several people with close links to Trump who are reportedly registered to vote in multiple states.

Trump's younger daughter Tiffany Trump is reportedly registered to vote in both Pennsylvania and New York — an allegation Trump aide Kellyanne Conway said Thursday was false.

CNN reported Wednesday that Steve Mnuchin, Trump's pick for Treasury secretary, is registered in both New York and California, although records show he last voted at his New York address in 2008.

The Sarasota Herald-Tribune reported that chief White House strategist Stephen Bannon was also registered to vote in two states — New York and Florida.
