AARP is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that has been working to promote the health and well-being of older Americans for more than sixty years. On behalf of our 1.5 million members and all older Ohioans statewide, we appreciate the demonstrated leadership and significant, bipartisan response to the coronavirus pandemic, as well as the ongoing efforts required as we move forward. As our Ohio leadership considers the next steps to address the various facets of this public health emergency, we urge them to continue to be especially mindful of older adults, who are most at risk from this disease.

Voters age 50 and older were the deciding factor in last year’s midterm elections, according to the National Election Pool Exit Poll results. The findings confirmed that 50-plus voters made up the majority of voters 62% in Ohio and 56 percent nationally. Candidates who ignored older voters, Ohio’s most powerful voting group, paid a price on Election Day.

Americans 50+ are the nation’s most powerful voting bloc – and it’s important we stay that way. The power of older voters is real, but many of them don’t vote in most midterm elections. In the 2016 Presidential Election, 2.9 million Ohioans age 50+ voted but in the 2014 Midterm Election, only 2.1 million Ohioans age 50+ voted. That’s a difference of almost 900,000 drop-off 50+ voters. AARP wants to change that.
