Has Donald Trump Voted In Past Elections?

This morning, Morning Joe dug up some footage from NBC sister show, Access Hollywood, which showed that in 2004, in what was supposed to be a puff piece, Donald Trump didn't know where he was supposed to go to vote. 
He showed up with camera crew and entourage in tow, precinct workers fawning, but they couldn't let him vote. He was at the wrong precinct location. 
Billy Bush, who hosted the Access Hollywood piece, told the Morning Joe team that Trump tried two other precincts, but they didn't have him listed. 
Trump, moments before being told they don't have his name as a voter. 
Here's the video from the Morning Joe Show:
Trump got nasty after the first frustrating and embarrassing scene. Apparently, Trump and  Access Hollywood blamed his "bodyguard" for him going to the wrong polling station three times. He spit at his bodyguard, "You figure out where the bleep you're going...." as he petulantly strode angrily back to his limo. 
This raises some interesting questions. In 2004, was Trump even registered to vote? (see update) Has he been an engaged citizen, voting in his life, in the past 20 years, even the past few years? 
It would seem that Donald Trump, in light of this twist in the plot, is obligated to prove he's even a registered voter, when he was registered and when he's voted. 
Dailymail online reports that Donald Trump did not vote in a primary for the past 21 years. The article states:
But according to City Board of Elections documents, Trump failed to show up at the primaries after that for 21 years.
Among the presidential primaries he missed were 1988 when George Bush Sr was nominated and Bob Dole in 1996.
Mr Trump became a Democrat in 2001, and documents show he ignored that party's primaries as well, missing the 2001 and 2005 primaries for mayor.
In 2002, not only did Mr Trump miss the Democratic primaries for statewide offices, but records show he also skipped the general election, the Associated Press reports..
There is also no evidence that Trump voted in the presidential primary between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, even though he voiced support for Mr Obama after Mrs Clinton took New York State.

It IS possible that Trump voted by absentee ballot every time up until the 2004 election shown on the video. That could explain his not knowing where to go to vote.
