With a tight race anticipated for Connecticut's next Governor, AARP is making sure that voters know where the candidates stand on issues important to them and their families.
“AARP wants to make sure our members and all voters know what the candidates are saying – and not saying – about key issues that matter to them and their families,” said AARP State Director, Nora Duncan. “Our nonpartisan voter guides help voters cut through the political clutter and pressure candidates to share their views on issues critical to older adults and their families before Election Day."
Watch our non-partisan video voter guide below, featuring 2014 gubernatorial candidates, Dannel Malloy and Tom Foley, as they answer questions about Financial Security, Family Caregiving, Reliable Telecommunications and Affordable Utilities.
AARP also released online voter guides featuring positions from Congressional, Gubernatorial and state legislative candidates – in their own words – on critical issues including Social Security, Medicare, financial security, caregiving and affordable utilities. Voters of all ages may view the voter guides at www.aarp.org/yourvote.
Visitors to the site can also contact the campaigns with their comments or questions and find out where they can vote in their state.
The nonpartisan AARP does not support, oppose, or contribute to any candidates for elected office.
