Where do Georgia Candidates Stand on Issues Impacting Quality of Life?

2014 Voter Education

AARP Georgia has released its nonpartisan voter guide featuring positions from the state’s Senatorial candidates – in their own words – on critical issues including Social Security, Medicare, and financial security. Voters of all ages may view the voter guides at www.aarp.org/yourvote.

“AARP feels it is important that our members know and understand where candidates stand on key issues in Georgia.  These often become pocket issues that impact our quality of life as it relates to housing, health care, education, long term care, caregiving, and so much more,” said Greg Tanner, AARP Georgia State Director.

AARP’s federal guide poses three questions on Social Security, Medicare, and Financial Security to candidates in all 471 federal races:

  • How would you protect Social Security for today’s seniors and strengthen it for future generations?
  • How would you put Medicare on stronger financial ground and protect today’s seniors and future retirees from the burden of rising health costs?
  • How would you help Americans save so they can secure their future and live independently as they age?

The responses, which appear alongside AARP principles on each issue, consist of publicly available information and excerpts from candidate campaign sources. Voters can enter their address to see responses from general election candidates in their specific races for seats in the Senate. Visitors can contact www.aarp.org/yourvote to provide comments or questions and find out where they can vote in their state.

An index of all races across the nation in AARP’s voter guides is located here. The nonpartisan AARP does not support, oppose, nor contribute to any candidates for elected office.
