Seattle — A new poll showed that voters age 50+ agree in their concerns with health care and personal finance issues. Doug Shadel from AARP and Allie Johnson from Seattle City Club are here to educate people on why their vote matters and how they can make their voices heard this fall.

They want to make the older generation feel empowered and prove that they have the ability to make changes in major issues.
