We Want to Hear From You. Your Opinion Matters!

AARP Ohio is coming to a city near you to learn what issues matter in the upcoming elections.

Americans 50-plus are our nation’s most powerful voters. We will likely make up more than 60% of all voters this year, and our votes will decide what happens in November’s elections.

That’s why we need your voice. AARP advocates are joining together to send a message to candidates and leaders, and you can make it stronger by participating in one of our 2022 Deciding Voices Listening Sessions in key communities across Ohio.


As we prepare to vote, we’re dealing with overwhelming challenges: prices are rising everywhere, including the pharmacy, grocery store and gas pump. We are inviting voters 50-plus to share their voice, experiences and views about what they need to thrive in Ohio. As candidates ramp up their campaigns for the November election, we need to remind them right now of their responsibility. Similar to focus groups, these listening sessions are facilitated discussions with groups of Ohio voters age 50 and above.

Together, we are calling on candidates to propose real solutions to address immediate and long-term challenges facing voters 50-plus.

We seek to hear from as many voices as possible from communities across Ohio. By the way, 50 also is the maximum number of participants for each group, so don’t delay in reserving your seat!

To sign up, click on the listening session of your choice: Cincinnati, Cleveland, Portsmouth, Columbus or Lima. Each session is from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. and lunch will be provided. Once you sign up, you will receive an email confirmation with the session details, including meeting location and address.
