Election Day is less than one month away, but soon Oregonians who are registered to vote can start mailing in or dropping off their ballots. AARP Oregon asked all the candidates for Oregon Governor three questions about issues relevant to our members and all Oregonians: retirement security, transportation/mobility options, and support for caregivers. We also asked all the candidates for Oregon Treasurer the question about retirement security.

Candidates also provided contact information so you can find out more about their positions on other issues, as well as their qualifications for office.

We also have an analysis on Measure 97. While AARP Oregon is not taking a position, we want you to have solid, unbiased information so you can make your choice. Read about it here.
