As we head into an unusual election season due to the pandemic, we asked some members of the entertainment industry to reminisce about their first voting experience. We hope their messages will inspire you to make your safe voting plan as soon as possible. Are you in? #ImIn

AARPNY is working hard to make sure our volunteers and members know their voting options – and to ensure voting can be done safely from home or in-person. In New York, you can now vote absentee, early and in-person on Election Day.

We will keep updating this page and our social media platforms with voting messages from celebrities for our AARP New York members and hard-working and dedicated volunteers.
