(OPEN):
IN THE LAST HAWAII-ELECTION, OLDER RESIDENTS ACCOUNTED FOR NEARLY 70-PERCENT OF THE VOTES THAT WERE CAST--EVEN THOUGH THEY ACCOUNTED FOR JUST OVER 40-PERCENT OF THE STATE'S POPULATION.  THIS YEAR, HAWAII'S OLDER VOTERS ARE EXPECTED TO DETERMINE THE OUTCOME OF THE PRIMARY-ELECTION, ON AUGUST 11TH.  BUT, KNOWING WHERE THE CANDIDATES STAND ON THE ISSUES IS CRITICAL TO CASTING AN INFORMED-VOTE--SAYS STEVE TAM, A-A-R-P HAWAII'S DIRECTOR OF ADVOCACY...

(TAM):
"
A-A-R-P HAWAII HAS DEVELOPED A STATE VOTER-GUIDE, TO HELP ITS MEMBERS--AND HAWAII-RESIDENTS--UNDERSTAND WHERE CANDIDATES FOR THE STATE-LEGISLATURE STAND ON ISSUES THAT MATTER TO THEM.  OLDER RESIDENTS ARE THE STRONGEST VOTING-GROUP IN THE STATE--AND WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT CANDIDATES ARE ADDRESSING THE ISSUES THAT THEY CARE ABOUT.  THIS YEAR'S VOTER-GUIDE REFLECTS HAWAII-RESIDENTS' CONTINUED-CONCERN WITH POCKETBOOK-ISSUES--INCLUDING TAXES, THE STATE-BUDGET, HEALTHCARE, AND LONG-TERM CARE."

(CLOSE):
THE A-A-R-P HAWAII VOTER-GUIDE IS AVAILABLE AT "A-A-R-P"-DOT-ORG-SLASH-"YOUR-VOTE".
