US President Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner has been registered to vote as a woman, according to New York State Board of Elections records.

Screen grabs posted by Wired show that Kushner, a senior advisor to the president, has been listed as "female" for eight years.

Kushner hasn't commented on the revelation and it remains unclear how the error was made.

DetailTrump had earlier slammed 'illegal voting'

It's unlikely that the error would amount to voter fraud, which requires an individual to deliberately provide false information.

Interestingly, Trump vehemently asserted that "millions of people" had "voted illegally" in the 2016 US presidential election, but provided no evidence.

Trump won the election through the Electoral College, despite receiving 2.86 million lesser votes than his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

The latest development comes days after it was revealed that Kushner and his wife Ivanka Trump had used their private email accounts while conducting official White House duties.

The revelation raised serious questions especially since Trump had frequently attacked Clinton during the election campaign for using her personal email as secretary of state.

Clinton called Kushner and Ivanka's email revelation "the height of hypocrisy."
