Sixteen-year-old Jack Bergeson is running for governor of Kansas.
And it doesn’t bother him a bit that on Election Day in November 2018, he will still be too young to vote, The Wall Street Journal reported.
“As long as I’m giving people the option of my candidacy, it doesn’t really matter too much that I won’t be able to vote for myself,” he said.
Kansas has no age requirements for running for governor, according to the newspaper.
Bergeson is vying for the Democratic nomination. His running mate is 17-year-old Alexander Cline, who is bidding to become lieutenant governor.
“We’re looking to revitalize the Kansas political system through an anti-establishment ticket,” Cline told KWCH-TV.
Bergeson has already raised the $2,037 fee needed to get on the ballot, the Journal reported.
