AARP is committed to helping you get the facts you need to choose candidates. In November, Oklahoma will elect its first female governor – either Lt. Governor Jari Askins, D, or Congresswoman Mary Fallin, R.
AARP is non-partisan – we don’t support or oppose any political candidates or contribute any money to campaigns or political action committees. Our priority is ensuring you know where the candidates stand before you cast your vote this November.
That’s why AARP Oklahoma asked Lt. Governor Askins and Congresswoman Fallin key questions about issues important to our members, older Americans and their families. Each candidate was allowed up to 125 words to answer each question. AARP did not modify those answers. The candidates were asked to check the support or oppose boxes.
In addition, AARP has provided a summary of our position for each of the issues.
