Vote
Kūpuna are the most important voting bloc in Hawai‘i and the nation. Older voters vote in greater numbers than other age groups and therefore help decide elections. Politicians know this and should know that they must pay attention to the issues that affect kūpuna if they want our vote.
Election
At AARP Hawai`i, we want to make sure that everyone eligible to vote knows how to vote and that their vote will count.
