HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - At just 17 and 18 years old, high school seniors Jordan Cozby and Tyler Bullard are already making strides to have the voices of their generation heard during the 2016 presidential election and beyond.
"We are both running for delegate to represent Secretary Clinton at the DNC if she wins the primary in Alabama and across the country to become the nominee," said Cozby.
Delegates play a critical role in securing a political party's nomination for a candidate. Most delegates are political and community leaders but these two aren't letting age stop their quest to become political pillars.
"This will be the first time I'll be able to cast my vote for someone I actually have full faith in. I'm really excited to see her continue on the change and legacy brought out by President Obama and I do believe Hillary Clinton is the one candidate who can do that and I want to be a part of the process of getting her elected," said Bullard.
The boys hope this crusade can disprove stereotypes that young people aren't interested in politics.
"Young people do love and believe in the Democratic Party and we're willing to work for it; willing to fight for it but we also want to have a stand within it. We want to have that role and that seat at the table to make some of these very important decisions. When we're looking at what the Democratic Party in Alabama in particular needs, we have got to look toward the future," said Cozby.
You can vote for Jordan Cozby and Tyler Bullard to be delegates for Hillary Clinton at the DNC on March 1st at your primary polling location if you live in congressional district five.
