Seniors’ voting guide

Dear Editor,

AARP Hawaii’s 2012 Primary Voter Guide is available for review at It outlines the positions of candidates in every state legislative race on four issues of concern to older Hawaii residents: the state budget, tax reform, health care and long-term care. Three-quarters of the 186 candidates running for state House and Senate seats responded to our questions, including 90 percent of incumbents.
