With over 87,000 members in the state of Wyoming, AARP’s membership makes up roughly one-third of registered voters in the Cowboy State. As the voice of voters age 50 and over, AARP plays an important role in educating and informing one of the most consistent voting demographic in the state and nation. According to the US Census, 90.5 percent of all registered voters age 50 and over in the US participated in the 2016 election and 75.2 percent of voters participated in the 2014 midterm election. In Wyoming those numbers are slightly lower, but remain impressive with 76 percent of voters age 60 and over voting in the 2016 election.
AARP Wyoming has compiled a list of data for the state regarding registered voters and categorizing the numbers for each district in the House and Senate. The numbers for the 60 districts in the House and the 30 districts in the Senate include: the total population for the district, the population of the 50+, the estimated number of AARP members, and the total number of registered voters in the district.
