Ethan Sonneborn is running for governor of Vermont. He’s also 14 years old. This is perfectly legal, which he explains on his very adorable and surprisingly professional website.
All that’s required for someone to run for governor in Vermont is that they have lived in the state for a minimum of four years. For the skeptics, a link to the Vermont constitution is also provided on Sonneborn’s website.
Sonneborn, who is a Democrat, also runs down the issues that are important to him, such as LGBTQ rights, healthcare for all, the environment, economy, and education.
