Texas Retirees Know What To Do

In 2018, Texas retirees are pulling for the politicians who uphold our pensions, health care, and Social Security.  Our voter turnout is far better than any other age group.

Across Texas, retirees are working with the Texas Alliance for Retired Americans and other progressive organizations to improve voter turnout. Many are working directly with the AFL-CIO.

As the March 6 election day approaches, seniors can be found making phone calls, knocking on doors, putting up signs, and spreading the word.

Change is Underway

Those who oppose retirement benefits are no longer dominating elections. Early vote totals indicate big improvements for the Democratic Party, while Republican Party turnout is barely growing. Seniors are always a big part of early voting.

President Tony Padilla is especially proud of the work being done in the seven metropolitan chapters of the Texas Alliance for Retired Americans. We will be discussing election results and next steps during our March meetings.
