Ask questions before voting

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to threaten the health and financial security of millions of Americans over 50, it’s critical that West Virginia voters 50+ demand candidates listen to our concerns. AARP West Virginia is committed to protect voters over 50 this election amid the pandemic and make our voices heard.

If candidates want to win, they need to listen to the issues that are important to West Virginia’s 50+ voters: protecting Social Security and Medicare, lowering prescription drug prices and safe, affordable long-term care.

This year, more than ever voters over 50 should be aware of the options they have to vote safely. You can vote by an absentee ballot, in-person during early voting, which begins Oct. 21, or in-person on Election Day on Nov. 3.

Your voice matters. If you are not registered to vote in West Virginia, you have until Oct. 13 to register.

AARP has a proud 34-year history of non-partisan voter engagement and does not endorse or oppose candidates, nor does AARP make contributions to political candidates or campaigns. But the organization encourages all West Virginians to ask questions, so you understand where the candidates stand on important issues.
