A political ad that mentions AARP is currently being broadcast in Virginia.  AARP did not authorize the political ad and we did not participate in its production.


AARP does not endorse candidates or make contributions to political campaigns or candidates.  We have a proud 32-year history of non-partisan voter engagement, providing voters with information on where the candidates stand on issues important to our members and their families, so they can make their own decisions on Election Day.


We urge all candidates to address voters’ concerns on issues such as Medicare, Social Security, prescription drugs, and health care costs. We also encourage our members and all Virginians to ask questions so they understand where the candidates stand on these and other important issues and choose the candidates that best reflect their views and values.

AARP is asking all voters to sign the pledge at, be the difference in this election, and vote.

Be The Difference - Vote
