So much is at stake for older adults and their families at the ballot box this year. Policy decided at the local, state, and federal levels can have a major impact on the lives of older people throughout our community. This year's midterm is key to maintaining programs that benefit older adults and their families, like home and community-based services (i.e., Pima Meals on Wheels, help with bathing, dressing, and housekeeping), Medicare, and Medicaid.
Mail ballots have gone out and if you are registered to receive one, you should have it by now. If you do not, please contact the Pima County Recorder's Office at (520) 724-4350.
