Donald Trump's kids forgot to register to vote. Don't make the same mistake.

Eric and Ivanka Trump didn't register in time to vote in next week's New York primary. Whoops!

Donald Trump's kids forgot to register to vote. Don't make the same mistake.

Eric and Ivanka Trump spend a lot of time with their dad, Donald.

They're practically inseparable.

Whether that's on the campaign trail, attending high-end galas, or holding gigantic scissors, you can usually find them by his side.

But there's one thing they won't be doing with their dad: voting for him.

It turns out the two billionaires-to-be forgot to register to vote.

OOOOOOOPS!

In order to vote in New York's primary election on April 19, they needed to have registered by March 25, a deadline they both missed.

"They were unaware of the rules and they didn't register in time," Papa Trump said on Fox News. "So they feel very, very guilty. They feel very guilty but it's fine."

And while there's a snowball's chance in heck that their two votes would have made much of a difference (though it's tough to feel too torn up about Donald Trump receiving two fewer votes), this is a good reminder for the rest of us to get to know our voting laws and registration dates.

Do you know when your state is holding its primary? Do you know the registration date? Are you FREAKING OUT RIGHT NOW?

Here's a quick breakdown of some of the upcoming primaries.

Data from Rock the Vote.

And more specific details (like how to register, for example) can be found at Rock the Vote's website.

Has the registration deadline already passed for your state?

And does that have you feeling all "Charlie Brown-y?"

Lucky for you, there's still plenty of time (no matter what state you're in) to register for the general election!

And what better time is there to register than right now while it's still on your mind? (Go on, do it. Doooooo it.)

Because registering to vote (and voting come Election Day) will have you all like:

When it comes to the general election, don’t be like Eric and Ivanka Trump. Register to vote.

Because whether you're a Democrat, Republican, or something else altogether, you should vote. Democracy works better when we all participate!

Americans are more interested in politics than ever these days. More voted in the 2020 election than in any other in the past 100 years. Over 65% of the voting-eligible cast a ballot in the contentious fight between Joe Biden and Donald Trump.

"People are very excited and paying attention even though there are all this bad news and high 'wrong track' numbers in the country," Nancy Zdunkewicz, managing editor at Democracy Corps, told The Hill.

It's wonderful to see that a greater number of Americans are standing up to be counted and demanding their voices be heard. But it's also the symptom of a deep level of discontent many people feel about their country.

While generational stereotypes don't apply to everyone, there are significant differences between how Baby Boomers (1944 to 1964), Gen X (1965 to 1980), and Millenials (1981 to 1996) were raised.

Baby Boomers tended to grow up in homes where one parent stayed home and the other worked outside of the house. Millennials are known for having over-involved "helicopter" parents.

Then, there's Gen X.

The smaller, cooler generation that, according to a 2004 marketing study "went through its all-important, formative years as one of the least parented, least nurtured generations in U.S. history."

The U.S. Surgeon General credits the new surge in COVID cases to "pandemic fatigue," but it's nothing compared to what healthcare workers on the frontlines are going through. TIME recently reported that nurses are experiencing burnout, but it often goes unseen. A nurse recently employed a social media trend to draw attention to the behind the scenes fatigue.

An ICU nurse posted her own "how it started/how it's going" photo on Twitter, and long story short, it's not going that great. The before photo of Kathryn, an ICU nurse in Nashville, was taken in the middle of April right after she completed nursing school. The after photo revealed just how much literal sweat and tears healthcare workers put in while treating people during the pandemic.
