The Power of the Older Voter!

2020 is a milestone year for voting, as it represents 100 years since women were granted the right to vote. Since the signing of the 19th Amendment, women have had higher rates of voter turnout than men and know their vote plays an important role in electoral polls. In general, both women and men over 65 continue to show up at the polls far more than any other age group. At the same time, the number of voters who fall into the category of “older,” keeps rising. In the 2016 presidential election, 71 percent of Americans over 65 voted. Our seniors understand the stability of the American electorate and are termed the only cohort group that looks out not only for their own well-being, but for the well-being of their children and grandchildren.

Please Help a Senior Cast Their Vote!

Seniors consider it an honor and privilege to vote and it is important to help them get to the polls or assist with mail in ballots. They are a powerful force recognized as their own voting bloc and might be the deciding demographic in the upcoming election! Every vote counts!
