In the 2016 Presidential election, 382,606 Granite Staters over 50+ voted. In the 2014 mid-term election, 337,472 turned out. Meet the state’s largest and most reliable voting bloc. Just over 500,000 people over 50 years old call New Hampshire home, some 230,000 of whom we are honored to call AARP members. It’s time for this bloc, like prior generations, to begin repairing broken government at the voting booth.
