Colorado Constitution Party Nominates 17-Year-Old High School Student for Statewide Partisan Race

According to this news story, the Colorado Constitution Party’s nominee for Regent of the University of Colorado will be Tyler Belmont. He is now age 17, but he will be 18 by the time of the election, and thus eligible to serve if elected. Colorado elects Regents of the University in partisan elections. There are both at-large seats (covering the whole state) and seats representing districts. Belmont is running in the at-large seat.

  1. Nice to see young people being nominated for office. the Socialist Party had a similar situation last year in NJ, where an 18 year old ran for Freeholder in Monmouth County. He was still 17 when he started to petition.
