The cast of the Broadway show "Hamilton" reportedly hasn't voted in years, RadarOnline.com claims.

"Certified results for the 2016 presidential election are not available, so it's unclear whether these actors made such a stand with their ballots," Radar staff wrote. "But records obtained by Radar show that some of the cast haven't voted in national elections in 10 years — if at all!"

According to Radar, Javier Muñoz, who plays the titular Hamilton, registered to vote in 2006 but hasn't voted since. Brandon Dixon, who plays Aaron Burr and who read the cast's address to Gov. Mike Pence on Friday, did not vote in the 2012 presidential election. Seth Stuart, who plays Thomas Jefferson, also missed the 2012 election.

President-elect Donald Trump criticized the cast for addressing Pence, demanding that they apologize.

 

During an appearance on "CBS This Morning", Dixon said "there's nothing to apologize for."

"The producers, the creators, and the cast, we recognize that Hamilton is an inherently American story told by the definition of an American community; we are men and women of different colors, creeds, and orientations," he added.

"The resonant nature of the show throughout the world, throughout the global community, demands that we make statements when there are important issues facing us as a community, so we wanted to stand up and spread a message of love and of unity."

The vice president-elect told Fox News that he wasn't offended by the cast's message to him, and said that he and his family "really enjoyed the show."

"I wasn't offended by what was said. I'll leave to others whether that was the appropriate venue to say it. I do want to say that the basic element, the center of that message is one that I want to address, that is, I know this is a very disappointing time for people that did not see their candidate win in that national election."
