Are You Ready for Nov. 2?

With election day just around the corner, we want to make sure you are armed with the facts you need to make informed decisions at the polls. The AARP Massachusetts nonpartisan voter education campaign focuses solely on the issues, and features voters’ guides, a gubernatorial candidates forum, and get out the vote activities.

The Issues: Older voters need to hear from the candidates about where they stand on important issues including:

  • health care
  • long-term care
  • livable communities
  • work
  • economic security
  • Social Security

Election 2010 Voters’ Guides: Find out where candidates for Massachusetts governor, U.S. congressional representative, state representative, and state senator stand on important issues.

AARP Massachusetts Governor’s Forum: Join us Oct. 20 in Boston to find out where the four candidates for governor stand on aging issues. Space is limited: RSVP today.

Get Out The Vote: Distribute voters’ guides, ask the candidates questions about aging issues, volunteer at our upcoming governor’s forum, and more. Join the AARP Massachusetts voter education campaign today. Send us an email at or call 1-866-448-3621.
