Records show Jenner voted in 2020, even though she says she didn't: report

Records indicate that California gubernatorial candidate and former reality television star Caitlyn Jenner voted last fall, despite her comments in an interview in which she said that she did not cast a ballot on Election Day in 2020, Politico reported.

A representative from the Los Angeles County registrar’s office confirmed to the outlet that Jenner cast a ballot in 2020 and provided documentation of her voting history.

“It was voting day, and I thought the only thing out here in California that I worry about which affect people is the propositions that were out there, and I didn’t see any propositions that I really had one side or the other,” Jenner said.

“And so, it was Election Day. And I just couldn't get excited about it. And I just wound up going to play golf and I say ‘uh, I’m not doing that,’” she continued. 


California residents voted on 12 ballot measures in November, Politico noted, including propositions on affirmative action, rent control and more. 

A Jenner campaign advisor told The Hill that the candidate “voted on some local issues” and that she was responding to a question from Bash about who she voted for president in 2020.

Jenner announced last month that she would run in the recall election targeting Newsom. When an election is scheduled later this year, California voters will decide first whether to recall Newsom. Then, regardless of their first answer, they will be asked to choose among a roster of candidates who have qualified to run for the office.
