AARP Minnesota released a series of videos featuring former Minnesota Supreme Court Justice Alan Page as part of “Protect Voters 50+,” a comprehensive voter engagement campaign to support and protect Minnesotans age 50-plus as they vote in the 2020 elections. The videos were being released as Minnesotans began early voting with new rules around absentee balloting; and on the heels of a national release of bipartisan battle ground polls by AARP showing that voters in key states age 65-plus will once again be a deciding factor in this year’s election and, even as there are strong partisan preferences, Social Security and Medicare are unifying issues for voters 50-plus.
