AARP released the “Your Vote Counts” 2014 Voters’ Guides, featuring information from senatorial and congressional candidates – in AARP's words – "on their plans to strengthen Social Security, Medicare and financial security." AARP’s federal Voters’ Guide poses three questions on Social Security, Medicare, and Financial Security:

  1. How would you protect Social Security for today's seniors and strengthen it for future generations?
  2. How would you put Medicare on stronger financial ground and protect today's seniors and future retirees from rising health costs?
  3. How would you help Americans save so they can secure their future?
Those questions are slightly changed from the 2012 AARP survey, but either set of questions is one of the best sources of candidate information in this election -- and many major party candidates decline to answer the AARP! Senior voters who are AARP members should demand that all candidates respond; and younger voters should read the responses to decide whom to vote for: this is the way election information SHOULD be gathered and distributed!

The AARP maintains a questionnaire website at AARP.org -- OnTheIssues excerpts the Senate Voter Guides for most Senate challengers and some House Representatives-elect. (P.S. And the AARP uses numerous OnTheIssues.org excerpts in their Voter Guide as well!)
