Stay Healthy, Vote Safely

4:06 PM, Oct 28, 2020

At AARP, we understand the risks of voting this year and want to keep you safe and healthy. For more than three decades, we have brought voters nonpartisan voter engagement with a goal of always providing information to you on where the candidates stand on issues, so you can make your own decisions.

Protect Voters 50+ is focused on helping you cast your vote safely and to make sure you know all your voting options. We want the candidates to know what is important to voters 50+, like social security and the high expense of prescription drugs. AARP is urging you to make sure that your voice is heard in this election.

Ohioans have three ways to vote in our state: on election day, by absentee ballot, and early voting. Technically, you can request an absentee ballot until noon on October 31st. However, during a recent press conference, Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose strongly advised and encouraged voters who still want to request an absentee ballot to make their request no later than this Friday, October 30. His recommendation was based on the overwhelming response and participation in absentee and early voting this election.

AARP will never tell you who to vote for, but instead make sure that you have the resources and information needed to safely make your voice heard this election.
