Last updated 8/4/2020 at 11:13am
HELENA — AARP Montana launched Monday “Protect Voters 50+,” a comprehensive voter engagement campaign to support and protect Montana age 50 and up as they vote in the 2020 elections. The campaign will provide information on where candidates stand on issues that matter to Montanans 50+ 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 Montana this fall at http://aarp.org/mt , the AARP Bulletin, direct mail, digital communications and paid media.
“AARP is demanding action to make sure that Americans 50+ — 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. “Politicians need to protect the health and financial security of voters 50-plus, especially during this pandemic.”
The “Protect Voters 50+” campaign will provide people with the information they need about this year’s elections, including:
• Audio voters’ guides
• Polling and Survey Results
• Issue briefings
• Direct mail, text messaging, social media and paid media
AARP Montana will track key races, sponsor radio voter guides and host tele-townhall events. Election information will be provided through a full-scale digital effort, including, aarp.org/election2020, AARP Now app (http://now.aarp.org), social media and news alerts.
AARP has a 34-year history of non-partisan voter engagement and does not endorse or oppose candidates, nor does AARP make contributions to political campaigns or candidates. We encourage all Montanans to ask questions, so they understand where the candidates stand on important issues and make their own decisions on Election Day.
