Hispanics are a growing voting block, with 7.8 million voting in 2004. Despite voting in record numbers, nearly 3 million registered Hispanic voters did not vote in 2004. As older Hispanics will be greatly affected by the outcome of issues such as how best to address soaring prescription drug prices, Social Security solvency and affordable health care, AARP is working to inform and educate Hispanic voters of all age groups and encourage them to vote. AARP is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization, and does not endorse political candidates, or contribute money to political parties or political candidates’ campaigns.
