Making Democracy Work Better

An Engaged Public

Older Americans have a strong desire to help our nation, and AARP urges a new commitment to volunteer service. Not only would society benefit, but such efforts can prove extremely rewarding for people of any age who devote their energy and know-how to helping others.

Exercising Your Vote

Our democracy also depends on an engaged citizenry that makes its voice known in the voting booth. Seniors don’t need to be reminded.

Public policies must continue to encourage the growth of our nation’s voter rolls, through ease of registration and user-friendly voting procedures.
