(OPEN):
AS THE NATION CONTINUES TO BATTLE A PANDEMIC, ADVOCATES FOR SENIORS IN ALABAMA SAY THAT BOTH THE HEALTH AND THE FINANCIAL SECURITY OF VOTERS OVER 50 ARE ON THE LINE.  THAT'S WHY COURTNEY TARVER [AS IN "CARVER"]--OF "A-A-R-P ALABAMA'S" VOLUNTEER EXECUTIVE-COUNCIL--SAYS THAT THE GROUP IS WORKING FOR THE VOICES OF OLDER VOTERS TO BE HEARD...

(TARVER):
"
FROM PREVENTING CUTS TO SOCIAL SECURITY, AND PROTECTING MEDICARE, TO LOWERING PRESCRIPTION-DRUG PRICES, OLDER ALABAMIANS DESERVE TO CAST THEIR VOTES ON THE ISSUES THAT MATTER.  THAT'S WHY WE'RE HERE TO HELP:  WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT ALABAMA-VOTERS KNOW ABOUT ALL OF THEIR OPTIONS, AND CAN VOTE SAFELY--WHETHER THEY USE AN ABSENTEE BALLOT, OR CAST A VOTE ON ELECTION DAY.  AND, IF YOU'RE PLANNING TO VOTE BY ABSENTEE BALLOT, WE RECOMMEND APPLYING FOR IT NOW."
