Alabama pundits believe that millennials could turn the upcoming special election against Judge Roy Moore, two key caveats, The Washington Post reports.

Democrats in the dead-red state need to get them to turn out at the polls, and give them a reason to vote for Moore's opponent, Doug Jones, the Post reported.

Democrats can't simply assume that millennials are going to put a Democrat in the U.S. Senate just because of the allegations against Moore.

"Over the next three weeks, the Jones camp needs to use every available opportunity to get millennials engaged and excited about voting for Doug Jones," political operative Daniel Deriso told the Post. "If they turn out, Doug Jones will win and Roy Moore's career of divisive politics will finally come to an end."

Democrats point to the mayoral election in Birmingham where Randall Woodfin, powered by the millennial vote, became the youngest mayor ever there.

Woodfin and others believe the same thing can happen Dec. 12, despite the fact that less than half of Alabama millennials view the Democratic party favorably, naturally.

"Millennials have a major role to play in this race," Woodfin told the Post. "Millennials have the power to change the political dynamics here. If they turn out in high numbers, they will guarantee that Doug Jones will be the next senator from Alabama."
