AARP Virginia to mobilize seniors ahead of 2020 elections
The campaign will provide information on where candidates stand on issues that matter to Virginians 50-plus and help them cast their votes safely from home or in-person.
A centerpiece of the campaign will focus on providing information about voting options in Virginia this fall at aarp.org/vavotes, the AARP Bulletin, direct mail, digital communications and paid media.
The campaign will also advocate for enhanced absentee ballot access.
“AARP is demanding action to make sure that Americans 50-plus – whether they are working parents, family caregivers, or seniors in nursing homes – can vote and make their voices heard,” said John Hishta, AARP senior vice president of campaigns.
AARP Virginia will track key races, sponsor debates, and host tele-townhall events. Election information will be provided through a full-scale digital effort, including aarp.org/election2020, AARP Now app, aarp.org/vavotes, social media and news alerts.
