AARP and AARP Foundation are urging a Minnesota District Court in Ramsey County (St. Paul) to send absentee ballots to all registered voters and waive a state requirement that voters must have a witness, or notary, sign their ballot envelope. In an amicus brief filed yesterday in the case NAACP Minnesota-Dakotas Area State Conference v. Simon, the organizations note that voters should not have to choose between risking their health and casting a ballot.

Our minds take shortcuts to get through the day. Usually, these shortcuts are helpful, learned series of tasks that we’ve shortened into one step. But what happens when we over-rely on these shortcuts? In this webinar, we will use real-world examples to identify some cognitive biases that frequently lead us to make the same decisions again and again. Deborah Jordan, Senior Design Thinker for AARP Innovation Labs, will give you some actionable tools to help you reframe your thinking to adapt and thrive in these changing times.
