(OPEN):
IN A NEW POLL FROM "A-A-R-P MICHIGAN", A FULL 97-PERCENT OF VOTERS WHO ARE 50 OR OLDER SAID THAT THEY'LL "DEFINITELY" VOTE IN NOVEMBER'S ELECTION.  LISA DEDDEN COOPER IS THE GROUP'S MANAGER OF ADVOCACY...

(COOPER):
"
OUR POLL SPOTLIGHTS THE IMPORTANCE OF MICHIGAN'S OLDER VOTERS.  HOWEVER, WE ALSO FOUND THAT THREE-IN-FIVE OF THEM ARE WORRIED THAT EITHER THEY OR OTHER FAMILY-MEMBERS WILL BECOME INFECTED BY THE CORONAVIRUS.  WHAT'S MORE, ABOUT TWO-THIRDS WORRY 'VERY OFTEN', OR 'SOMEWHAT OFTEN', ABOUT VARIOUS ECONOMIC ISSUES; THESE INCLUDE HAVING HEALTH-EXPENSES THAT THEY CAN'T AFFORD, NOT HAVING FINANCIAL SECURITY IN RETIREMENT, OR NOT HAVING ENOUGH TO PAY FOR CARE, WHEN THEY GET OLDER.  WE ALSO RECENTLY LAUNCHED A CAMPAIGN CALLED 'PROTECT VOTERS 50-PLUS', WHICH AIMS TO HELP OLDER MICHIGANDERS VOTE SAFELY THIS YEAR--WHETHER THEY CHOOSE TO DO SO FROM HOME, OR IN-PERSON."
