Voters 50 Plus: Our Voices Decide  

Americans over the age of 50 are our nation’s most powerful voters – and you will be the deciders in the 2024 elections. The District of Columbia’s June 4 primary election will determine which candidates appear on November’s general election ballot for members of the D.C. Council, including an At-Large seat and seats in Wards 2, 4, 7, and 8, the D.C. delegate to Congress and other District-wide offices.

Voters aged 50 plus know they can count on AARP for nonpartisan information about when, where and how to vote, and the candidates’ positions on their policy priorities. We don’t tell our members or anyone else who to vote for. But we are committed to making sure all voters have the information they need to make their voices heard in the 2024 elections. We provide the information so you can cast your ballot!

Washington, D.C., and the Board of Elections has made it easy to cast your ballot, with same-day voter registration and no-excuse mail-in ballots sent to all registered voters. Here is some essential information and key dates:

  • The deadline to register in advance is May 14. You can also same-day register when you cast your ballot.
  • Mail-in balloting: All active, registered voters will receive a no-excuse mail-in ballot for the primary election. You can return the ballot by mail or place it in a secure drop box located around the District.
  • Ballot drop boxes are open from May 10-June 4.
  • Early in-person voting: You can cast your ballot early and in person at an Early Vote Center located throughout the District from May 26-June 2.
  • In-person voting on Election Day: The final day to cast your ballot in the primary is Tuesday, June 4. Find your polling place online at the D.C. Board of Elections website,

The voices of people over 50 will decide this election. But our voices won’t be heard if we don’t vote. Make the commitment now to be a Decider. Be the person who is committed to speaking up, voting, and holding elected leaders accountable. AARP DC is providing all voters 50 and over in the District with accurate, up-to-date voting information to help you understand your options when it comes to how, when and where to cast your ballot.
