One of the youngest delegates to the Democratic National Convention is from right here in Albany.
Andrew Niquette is only 19 years old.
He just returned from a Democratic National Committee meeting in Orlando meeting where they finalized a draft for the party's platform.
He said gearing up for the convention has been quite intense.
Niquette is a Bernie Sanders delegate and is working to get more of his peers involved in politics.
"I think I bring the youth aspect of the political scene," said Niquette. "Not enough young individuals get involved in politics nowadays so I think a lot of people are kind of rooting for the younger generation to step up and be involved in politics."
The Democratic National Convention begins July 25 in Philadelphia.
