Get the facts before you vote

Election Day is just weeks away, and the campaign rhetoric is heating up. So far, here in Massachusetts, Medicare and Social Security have not been a part of the conversation. Yet, the majority of voters age 50+ say that getting more specifics about candidates’ plans on Social Security and Medicare will help determine their vote on Election Day.”

You’ve earned the right to know about the candidates’ positions on Medicare and Social Security, and how any changes they propose may affect you and your family. Visit to read voters’ guides for your district, as well as for President and U.S. Senate.
