Voter turnout is often low in nonpresidential election years, but Nevada will have a lot at stake in 2014 contests for governor and other state and federal offices. The results could affect critical issues such as Medicaid, Social Security and long-term services and supports.
Turnout of registered Nevada voters dropped from 80 percent in 2008 to 64 percent in 2010. AARP aims to reverse that pattern in 2014 and is seeking activists to help get out the vote. AARP Nevada will keep its team of activists informed about candidates’ positions on key issues, and they will engage voters in discussing the issues through news and social media.
