AARP is concerned about the impact of COVID-19 and voter participation in Election 2020. AARP sent this letter to leaders of the North Carolina General Assembly.
AARP North Carolina will ask candidates and educate voters about prescription drug costs, Medicare, age discrimination and other issues important to older adults.
RALEIGH – A new survey of North Carolina registered voters ages 40 plus finds that the vast majority of respondents (83.5 percent) of current caregivers said that they will provide future caregiving or assistance on an unpaid basis to an adult loved one. It also found that over 95 percent think it is important to have services available in their communities to help older adults live independently.
Voting in the mid-term elections is easy for some people – just a quick walk around the corner or a short drive to the polling station. But for others, it may seem impossible.
AARP invites you to see this powerful one-hour documentary, meet the author and producer, and learn how important lessons from the past are relevant today.
Before you vote, take the time to get to know where the candidates stand on issues that matter the most to AARP members and their families. This guide helps explain more about the top federal voting issues for older adults, as well as some guiding principals when it comes to the future of our health care and economic security. For more information on any of these voting issues, go to www.aarp.org/vote.
