Video Available on Gubernatorial Candidates
If you would like to know more about the gubernatorial candidates Rep. Andria Tupola (R) and Gov. David Ige, AARP Hawaii released its 2018 Gubernatorial Video Voters’ Guide as part of AARP’s “Be the Difference. Vote™” campaign, which continues AARP’s long tradition of nonpartisan voter engagement.
This guide will provide Hawai‘i voters with information on where the candidates stand on issues that matter most to older residents and their families and help these impactful voters make their voices heard on Election Day.
The video can be accessed at aarp.org/vote. Some of the issues featured include access to retirement savings at work, transit-oriented development, funding for the landmark Kupuna Caregivers program and home-based community services.
“We thank the candidates for participating and encourage voters to look at the videos and judge for themselves how the candidates stand on issues important to caregivers and kupuna in Hawai‘i,” said Barbara Kim Stanton, AARP Hawai‘i State Director. “Candidates are wise to pay attention to older voters because they turn out to vote in large numbers and will be the difference again this November.”
The video voters’ guide builds on AARP’s voter engagement effort to get the largest possible turnout of 50-plus voters to the polls in November. The organization has worked to ensure issues of particular importance to older voters are front and center in midterm elections—issues like Medicare, Social Security, financial security, prescription drug costs, and caregiving.
