NYRA has joined the campaign to amend North Carolina’s constitution to allow candidates under 21 to run for local office. Attempts by Zach Medford and Jonus Nobles, both under 21, to run for local office in North Carolina have attracted a good deal of media attention to the state’s prohibition on candidates under 21. NYRA’s currently forming chapter in NC has sprung to action. DeWarren Langley from the national office, and NYRA-NC chapter president, Stevie Nabors are working to amend the state constitution to allow all registered voters the chance to run for office. NYRA feels there are no reasons for age restrictions to run for office. If a candidate lacks experience and political skills voters won’t elect him, age is irrelevant.
